In CONTROL, is there a way to jump ahead, and start at a line in the gcode file?
Negative. Gcode is a conversation, modals can be set many lines earlier. Only a human can edit the gcode to have the right modals and include manual moves to move to and into the cut at the line you want without crashing.
Dang. That would be helpful. I do a lot of part cut outs. Sometimes it's nice to just be able to jump ahead to just one of the parts instead of having to run through the entire operation, or make a custom gcode for just one part. This was a convenient feature of Cambam Thanks for the reply though!
If you search this forum for this question you will find it answered many times.
The answer is always 'no, but....except .... maybe....'
The but is that bCNC has a handy editor in it that can let you turn off cut blocks, so you can turn off blocks that you don't want and leave the rest and save the file for cutting.
I have never had a problem with it missing a modal setting but that does not mean it cannot happen, so the onus is on you to learn to read Gcode and check everything twice before running the code.
