G codes for 3D printing

Post by boss4 » Mon Apr 30, 2018 4:45 am

I am planning to make a 3D printer attachment for my 3 axis CNC mill which us run by kanalog and kflop. This seems very strait forward, its just 1 stepper motor for the extruder and a couple of simple loops running the bed and hot end.

Anyways the real question in all of this, it seems like kmotion CNC doesn't support some of the M-Codes that are commonly used with 3D printers such as M140 and 190. I would also like to have the extruder labeled as the E axis (instead of A,B or C) to make this fully compatible with G code used by another 3D printer that I occasionally use.

Is there an easy way to do this that I am missing?

Here is a reference:

Hi boss4,

Those changes would be somewhat difficult. Can you change the Post Processor?

Craftware doesn't seem to have a customizable Post Processor so we wrote a simple program to make the conversions to the GCode. You can find it here

There is also some code for controlling KNozz Temperatures via MCodes in this Thread.

Thanks TK, I think I will go with the re post processing route.

Bought multiple codes from seller and did not have any issues with him at all.


Thanks for making things so smooth
