Photo V Carve

Postby Keystone Chuck » Tue Dec 29, 2015 10:25 pm

Going to try Photo V Carve for the first time since I bought my machine. What Post Processor should I pick? I see that my V Carve Pro is "LinuxCNC (inch)(*.ngc) but I see nothing like that in my Photo V Carve post processor choices.

When I was working with Vectric about it, they suggested I do whatever work in PhotoVCarve I was going to do, then import it into Aspire (which I also have) to get around the post processor issue. Do you have any of the other Vectric products by chance?

I purchased V Carve Pro 8.0 and Photo V Carve at the same time (bundle deal). My V Carve works great but I don't have the same choices for post processors in Photo V Carve.

I don't have PhotoVCarve, but if it has a separate folder for Post Processors then you can probably copy the ones missing into from the VCarve Pro PP folder.

The post processors are just text files and the one we have on our wiki will work for all Vectric products. You can download it here:

Also the normal post processor name (when you go to save toolpaths and get a drop down list) will be LinuxCNC G64 Arc Inch FYI
It will export to a .ngc file

Hope this helps - you can also ask Vectric for a post that works with LinuxCNC (formerly EMC2)
