But for my 4th axis they have a 'wrapper' plug in rather like CNCwrapper. It wasn't perfect (too many digits after the decimal point for my Heidenhain controller). I sent a message to the author and within 24 hours he had amended the plug in embedding controls to allow choice of not only the number of digits after the decimal point in the 'wrapped G code' but also allowing suppression of comments, which my controller had objected to. When it came to fine tuning my post processor, again lots of help from the CAMBAM forum resulting rapidly in a working solution.

    Yes I'm a happy bunny :)
    Glad you've cracked it Andrew!! I'm interested in this as I'd like to add a 4th axis to my router and I have CAMBAM (amongst others) so am happy to see that there is a plugin....definitely going to look at this when the time comes to add the 4th axis...
