    Default g-code issues for tormach770 from fusion 360

    Hey guys, I'm learning fusion 360 with Titans of cnc channel. I'm trying to make the Titan 1m prj. on my Tormach 770. I finished the drawing and loaded the cam generated
    g-code onto my Tormach 770 but it through a bunch of alarms. The program has a bunch of M26 codes that the tormach doesn't like. I think its a tool unclamp code, also program has "end of blocks" before program notes and in front of random blocks. I set the default g-code editor to notepad and it still posts this nonsense in fusion.
    Has anyone made the Titan 1m with there Tormach? I appreciate any help you can give me. FYI, I've been writing g-code by hand for years but I've always wanted to learn cad/cam so this is my first attempt. i'm very green with cad/cam software.

    If you genereated the code in Fusion with a Tormach post processor then the code should run and not contain any M codes your machine does not support. You have a post processor configuration issue.

    It's possible they are using manual G-code steps in Fusion. If so, you have to remove or replace those.

    I'll look into the post processor issue. I guess there is a post processor default setting to change or something like that?

    I'm not sure what you mean by manual g code steps. I can go through the program and remove the m codes and other nonsense, but the program is quite long and this is a pain. I was hoping I could just set the fusion software up correctly for my Tormach for future projects.

    check if you have anything about 4th axis enabled, either machine in fusion or in the tormach post. I had something similar when the fusion machine was 4 axis mill. I think the codes are to clamp/unclamp the rotary axis.

    By "manual G code steps" I mean exactly that -- it's possible to create a "tool path" in Fusion that lets you enter G-code inline, and Fusion will then just spit that out as you entered it when you post the part.

    Thanks, I'll look into that.
