New Version 0.9.0.45

Postby G-Force_Admin » Fri Apr 20, 2018 9:40 pm

I just uploaded a new version with a minor bug fix.
This version also includes a new feature I added last week.
A few users with Laguna machines had contacted me, as their machine only ran in metric mode, but they preferred to work in inches.
JointCAM will now allow you to work in one unit, and export g-code in a different unit. It also gives you the option to scale the feedrate along with the units.
So, if you select "Inches to mm's", all coordinates will be scaled by a factor of 25.4.
If you select "mm's to Inches", the coordinates will be scaled by 1/25.4.
These settings are under "Unit Conversion" on the Configuration tab.

Note that all values used in JointCAM (including for tools) need to use the same units, except for feedrate.
