It is a standard format. I do not think there is any way to make custom additions.
They also have a JSON output. I don't know what would be easier for you to work with so I have attached a file in that format to this post. I think I added one tool since I sent you the other file.
I like your idea of pulling in the data that is in the file and prompting for the rest of the fields.
I've made some good progress on the post-processor. It seems to be working (as best I can tell without an actual machine to try it on). I've compared the output to some files posted by Rod and all seems well. I want to clean up just a few things and I'll start a thread and post it for others to try. I know you have some sample ngc files in the repository. Do you have any of the drawings you used to create those files or did you just hand code them completely from scratch?

Attached is the very original wrench, actually I didn't know that I still had it...

All the others are just hand coded.

Thanks, I'll download it and see how my output compares to what is in the repository.

Steven,

Attached is the preliminary converter file if you would like to give it a try.

I have used the tab limited version.

I have assumed that the original units are either metric or imperial so no conversion should be necessary, it seems SheetCam store all units as metric equivalents.

It will ask for the unknown parameters for each 'tool' as it loops through the file. The last entered parameters will be used as the default for the current tool.

Phill,

Have you pushed any updates lately,

I did a git pull and could not see a disable box for the ohmic, are we still going to put that in?

Dont get me wrong I am not complaining just wondering if that feature request will make it in.

Also the disable G-code feature is working well,

I have gotten my Sheetcam cut rules sorted and now am using the turn off g-code feature on my holes and towards the end of the cut, That has fully eliminated the torch diving when it is performing a overcut.

Ohmic Enable should be a check box on the Config tab.

Edit: maybe that would actually be better on the Run tab???
