Release History

----- Github tag: v2.1 -----

  • Enhancement: Custom gcode for coolant channels can be defined

----- Github tag: v2.0.1 -----

  • Bugfix: Undefined variable used for Z height during toolchange, garbage output

----- Github tag: v2 -----

  • Numerous bugfixes
  • Coolant channels reworked; allows for channels A and B to be enabled at the same time; allows a coolant type to be defined for a laser; coolant properties are unified to control either Marlin and Grbl firmware; warnings if tool’s requested coolant is not configured on a channel
  • SafeZ (G1 to G0 conversion) can reference the Heights defined in a tool operations
  • Enhanced comment levels
  • Firmware dialect selected as a property
  • Single file install via F360 standard Manage->Post Library install interface
  • Updated documentation

----- Github tag: v1 -----

  • G0 Rapid move at the beginning of each cut is restored - resolves tool drag when Z is not retracted before horizontal travel occurs (F360 Hobby issue)
  • Recovers G0 Rapids that occur above a safe height or that are vertical only (F360 Hobby issue)
  • Feedrates can be scaled to ensure mpcnc Z axis cut rate is not exceeded. Fusion 360 kinematics do not respect an axes feedrate if different from the machine’s generalized feedrate.

Warning:

  • User must review all GCode produced to ensure it is appropriate for their needs.

Thanks heaps … I think I set this up right… I’ve used F360 in the past in DESIGN Mode but not manufacturing mode so hope this i s correct for setting up PP as per image attached.

Yes looks good. Make sure to review the docs and set the properties as needed.
