Larken StarCAM

Postby darren » Tue Jan 06, 2015 11:50 pm

Greetings!

A friend of mine has a Larken CNC (http://www.larkencnc.com) and they run their own processor called StarCAM. Any chance of getting a MeshCAM post-processor for their controller, or will basic generic GCode do the job?

They seem to have their processor's capabilities documented here: http://larkencnc.com/dloads/index.shtml

I found a gcode list on page 31 of the Starcam3.pdf user manual from the downloads page.

Gcodes are the standard G00, G01, G02, G03 and G04 for motion and M03, M05 and S for spindle on/off and speed control, and M06 pauses for a toolchange.

It looks like the "basic gcode inch-arcs" post should work OK. You will need to set the controller to use the Gcode spooler.
