Double generation of g-code?
« on: October 21, 2017, 03:27:35 PM »
I create a letter in SKETCH. The only way I know how to get out of Sketch and preserve the image is to click the gear in the upper right hand corner. This generates g-code, and can be time consuming. To engrave the image I have to generate the g-code a second time.

Am I doing something wrong that T2 goes through 2 generate g-codes cycles?
If I am not doing something wrong, is the double generation something that could be removed?

Re: Double generation of g-code, is it necessary?

I assume you are doing Sketch (Filled) since if it were vector it would be very fast, so once you generate the G-code the only reason it would need to re-generate is if you change settings since the G-code would be incorrect.

If you don't change anything, just click the gear to generate g-code and immediately go to the laser control screen it would be immediate.
