When I create a file for Mach 3 from Aspire, it automatically makes a file header stating "( File Created by VCarve Pro)".

Is there a way to put more information in the file like?:
cutting tool
feed rate
etc.

Hi Don,

The default Mach3 postp saves the following information into the header of toolpath files,

begin HEADER

"( [TP_FILENAME] )"
"( File created: [DATE] - [TIME])"
"( for Mach2/3 from Vectric )"
"( Material Size)"
"( X= [XLENGTH], Y= [YLENGTH], Z= [ZLENGTH])"
"([FILE_NOTES])"
"(Toolpaths used in this file: )"
"([TOOLPATHS_OUTPUT])"
"(Tools used in this file: )"
"([TOOLS_USED])"
"[N]G00G20G17G90G40G49G80"
"[N]G70G91.1"
"[N]T[T]M06"
"[N] ([TOOLNAME])"
"[N]G00G43[ZH]H[T]"
"[N][S]M03"
"[N](Toolpath:- [TOOLPATH_NAME])"
"[N]([TOOLPATH_NOTES])"
"[N]G94"
"[N][XH][YH][F]"

Additional information can be added and this is explained in the postprocessor manual - See > Postprocessor Guide (http://www.vectric.com/forum/download/file.php?id=13820)
