I have build a 3-axis milling machine and am starting to look into how I create a G code file for the smoothieboard to read. The only thing I need my smoothieboard to do is to move the 3 axes for now. I currently have Autodesk Inventor 2014 with HSM express. I'm am able to figure out the selection of tool paths but am really confused when it comes to the post processor portion. Which post processor suits the smoothieboard or are people going into the code file and deleting lines that are not recognized by smoothie?
If someone knows of a tutorial or other free software that can be used hassle free with the smoothieboard, please let me know. If you can even write up a tutorial in this thread that would be more than awesome :D
