I’m new to RhinoCAM, and I am using a Laguna Swift CNC router.
The Laguna controller is really built for single-tool operations, but I’ve found workarounds using Fusion360 to pause an operation between tools to do a manual tool change.
However, I can’t find a way to do this in RhinoCAM.
Ideally, I would simply create a 2nd setup using the remaining stock from the roughing operation. If there is a way to do this, I would love to hear it.
Alternatively, if there is a way to add in a manual pause in between operations, that would be great too. That is what I’ve done in Fusion, by editing the Gcode after posting. I tried the same thing with the RhinoCAM Gcode, however, but the machine just skipped right over the pause and dove into my finishing pass using the roughing tool (ACK!).
If anyone has any solutions, I’m all ears.
Thanks so much!
You can in most cases edit the post for your machine and insert an M0 (stop but not rewind) before the tool change. Some machines won’t respond to this though, depends on the age and the CNC control language.
Thanks so much for this! I will try to get this working. It makes me a bit nervous to get into the deeper parts of RhinoCAM, but hopefully I’ll get a better understanding of how the whole process works.
