VS Code template for .cnc G code
« on: January 18, 2014, 05:26:03 pm »
I am about to purchase a CNC milling machine. I am proficient in using a manual milling machine, but this will be my first time with a CNC mill.  I am also purchasing cad cam/post processor software to feed the new beast, but I really want to be able to code my own .cnc programs. So, in preparation for this new adventure, I am teaching myself Computer Numeric Control (CNC) programming.  I am a computer systems engineer, and I have been using VS for 20+ years.  It would help if I could find a .cnc code template to help me along.  Has anyone created or heard of a VS code template for .cnc G code program files?

I suppose you've seen this - $99 a year, $299 for a lifetime

Slickedit has a caps command that can force everything to be upper case.

What do you mean by code template for G code?
