    Setting Up CamBam 0.9 So it Correctly Feeds CNC Wrapper and Mach3

    The individual documentation for CamBam, CNC Wrapper, and Mach3 is very good. However, the documentation that treats the collection of all three programs as a single system is often hidden in their forums and not found in a single place. Yet they truly are elements of a single system. CamBam generates G-code, CNC Wrapper modifies this code, and Mach3 interprets it. If any program outputs G-code incompatible with the next program, our system is dead.

    It has been a real challenge to find the correct key words to search the forums for this system level wisdom. This article expands on a brief but essential exchange found on the CamBam forum that explains how to configure CamBam so it will generate G-code files compatible with CNC Wrapper.
