Makes sense, yes. Update attached.
Changes:

andrew, it works fine, thank you so much!
first move is executed on Z level 0 but should be Z Clear?

Re: comma as decimal separator in cnc code
Can you correct the first 4 lines of the program and post them, so I can update the configuration, thanks.peter wrote:our first move seems to be executed on Z level 0 but should be Z Clear?

andrew, I am not shure, it may be perfect as it is, it looks like original TNC145 header syntax, I have to find it out on the machine.

Re: comma as decimal separator in cnc code
behavior of TNC is perfect with the actual header syntax, moving 3 L X+1,272 Y+0,400 R0 F9999 M13 with holding last Z level, then 4 L Z0,300 R0 F30 M

feedrate is set twice in one line is not perfect at the moment (manually edited with no problem)

Re: comma as decimal separator in cnc code
thank you, I've just checked CAM output file, looks perfect, fine! Machine test result will be posted later, an other question, for output file extension *.cnc instead of *.nc how to manage, please?

Re: comma as decimal separator in cnc code
andrew, thank you for your great job, QCADCAM 3.11.0 is fine for me, looks very good in work results!
Re: comma as decimal separator in cnc code
Good point!
This will be interesting for my TNC 430 to engrave Labels
I try to extend TNC 415 to TNC 430
Extension .cnc to .h no problem!
TrueType etc. is nice with QCad CAM
Normal contours and holes I process with my own software
Is it possible to disable layers, in my case useful for "CAMLabels" not for the rest! (one complete CADfile) ?
TOOL CALL with "GRAV" (comes from a Tool table) corrupts the script !
Solution for inserting " ?
is it possible to catch the filename SCHRIFT.DXF or alternativ the name of the Layer to feed the first and last line
to complete the CNCfile?

Re: comma as decimal separator in cnc code
Yes, simply hide those layers in the layer list (eye icon) before exporting to CAM.olly wrote:Is it possible to disable layers, in my case useful for "CAMLabels" not for the rest! (one complete CADfile) ?

File name of exported file: this.fileNameis it possible to catch the filename SCHRIFT.DXF or alternativ the name of the Layer to feed the first and last line

File name of drawing file: this.document.getFileName()
Layer name of current layer:
var entity = this.getEntity(); var layerId = entity.getLayerId(); var layer = this.document.queryLayer(layerId); var layerName = layer.getName();
Re: comma as decimal separator in cnc code
Andrew thanks for your hints
one Step is to go
this.writeLine("BEGIN PGM "+this.document.getFileName()+"MM");
here I got NullString
this.writeLine("BEGIN PGM "+this.fileName+"MM");
here the complete path will be returned

Re: comma as decimal separator in cnc code
This would indicate that the drawing has not been saved and therefore does not have a file name.olly wrote:this.writeLine("BEGIN PGM "+this.document.getFileName()+"MM");

Yes. If you need to get the file name only, use new QFileInfo(this.fileName).fileName().this.writeLine("BEGIN PGM "+this.fileName+"MM");
