VCarve or V carve photo with snapmaker

Anyone use Vcarve with e snapmaker. I ve downloaded the program but it needs a post processer to save the files. im wondering if anyone has a workaround for this or if snapmaker has a post processor that work with vcarve?

Here is how you can use Snapmaker Luban to work with V-bit (not sure if your V carve refers to this)

  1. On the right top of the CNC G-code generator, you can use other bit to specify your custom V-bit.

  1. On “Configurations” widget, under “Path” section, choose “Outline” for Carve Path. It will generate path according to your image and the settings of your V-bit.

Edited: For more detailed usage, you can check the manual over CNC Carving:

You can also work with Fusion 360, there are discussions about Fusion 360 on this forum. You can also find document of how to generate post-processed G-code using Fusion 360 here:

It’s an old document for SM 1.0 (I’m not sure if new document for SM2.0 is ready), but the routine is the same.


thank you cor the information. 2 things if i could get luban to render anything over 100 mm i would have a thirst to want to continue using luban but in its current state it keeps crashing on my and many other with larger and hoger or more complex cnc models.
2 i am not sure you understand the question i am asking
