Revision to Configuring RepRapFirmware for a CNC machine
|To put the firmware in CNC mode and tell it which outputs to use for spindle motor control, use the M453 command, see [[GCode#Section_M453_Select_CNC_Printer_Mode]].|
|If you are going to use work offsets, by ending the config.g file with a G54 command, those will be used by default. To modify the offsets use G10 L2 P1 or G10 L20 P1 commands.|
|You will probably want to change the pause.g file so as not to move the tool sideways in case you are edge milling.|
|Be sure that the stop.g file exists. Otherwise pausing a job will also disable the stepper drivers and the machine would need to be homed again.|
