Multicam uses "//" in front of comments. Can cutviewer work with this instead of parentheses?

I just tried it and it seems to work for me.

Can you give me a little more detail on what changes you made to your testing?

Also I'm trying to get my mind around the "dummy tool G20" thing... it's not in my list of Multicam supported g-codes, so I looked it up in Wikipedia, where it's defined as "programming in inches". Puzzled.

thanks,

I took a file that I already had and changed some of the comments from ( to //. CV was able to run the file without trouble.

I don't understand the "Dummy tool G20" comment. I usually have G20 at the start of the inch post but it should not be related to a tool change. I did see you comment about needing a dummy tool change to get the S variable to be substituted. I think it might be that you need the spindle on command,M3 , to use the S variable.
