Milling CW & Plunge

Dear John,

Sorry if you had dealed with before. Chillipeppr is fine for milling aluminum holes. But I didn’t find CW direction option nor a fine plunge rate between passes. On aluminum, the milling tool suffers!

Best Regards,

David

ChiliPeppr is just a sender of Gcode to your controller. So if you wanted to generate CW directions or fine plunge, it would be your Gcode path generation software that does that, i.e. Fusion 360 milling path generation.

Hi John !

Thanks for reply. I understood. I manually changed on libreoffice via find & replace and it looks fine. Even it runs well on camotics:
