How to use

This is a bash shell script, so it is intended to be used in Linux/Unix or in any other bash compatible environment

It is used like this:

./post_process.sh filename.gcode 12000

the first parameter is the gcode file to convert. the second parameter is the RPMSs (rotation speed) of the spindle.

This will result in a new file named:

filename_postprocessed.gcode

being created. This file is now FABtotum compatible.

Video tutorial: run bash on Windows
