# Setting fastpipe to inches is still outputting to metric

Ben Edwards shared this question 7 months ago

I need to work in fastpipe in inches - but changing the setting under fastpipe options still outputs in metric.

Looking in the FP_SETUP.CFG I can see that it changed the units and output but the resulting cnc gcode is still all metric - Gcode lists G71 at the top but should be G70.

Here is the config:

UNITS, 1 , 2

DIMS, .004, 0.04

TBAR, 1 , 1 , 0

PBACK, 0

PROCESS,-1 , 16777215 , 1 ,-1

PROCESS, 0 , 12632256 , 0 , 0

PROCESS, 1 , 255 , 2 ,-1

PROCESS, 2 , 65280 , 1 ,-1

PROCESS, 3 , 16711680 , 1 ,-1

PROCESS, 4 , 65535 , 1 ,-1

MONO, 255 , 65280 , 16777215 , 12632256 , 16711680

STEREO, 255 , 16711680 , 16777215 , 0

VIEW, 315 , 10 , 35.2644 , 10 , 0 , 0 , 0

OUTPUT, 1 , 1 , 1 , 0 , 1 , 1 , 1 , 1 , 1 , 1 , 1 , 0 , 0 , 0 , 1 , 1 ,_

FAIRDETAIL, 0 , 50000 , 0, 0

FASTCAM,C:\Program Files (x86)\FastCAM\fastcam.exe

SIMS, 0

NCOMIT, 0 , 0 , 0 , 0

NCDIV, 72

Also all pre-done pipes are still in metric - is there anyway to work just in inches?

Example of the output:

%

G92 X0. Y0. B0. C0.

G71

G90

G00X0.000A0.000

M07

F500.

G01X10.000A0.000F500.

G01X10.000A-5.000F500.

G01X10.000A-10.000F500.

Fastcam we adjusted the setup.dat to:

CONTROL,7,FLCNC.CON,FLCNC

NEST,TOP LEFT

TORCHES,6

PLACES,2

EXTENSION,TXT

UNITS,1,1,0

THEME,XPTHEME

PRINTER,,MONO

PLATE OUTLINE,14,1

Which looks to work correctly with inches.

Any help would be appreciated.
