replace Mxx code was created by FabioP
Hi all,

I have a script code under "Filter" that works fine,

#!/usr/bin/env python
# gcode2ngc.py

import sys


# First line
print "%"

f = file(sys.argv[1])
for line in f:

# Change extruder axis name
line = line.replace(" E", " A")

# S -> P
line = line.replace(" S", " P")
# Comment T0 code
line = line.replace("T0", ";T0")

# Comment G28 code
line = line.replace("G28", ";G28")

# Comment M82 code
line = line.replace("M82", ";M82")


print line.strip()

# Last line
print "%"


but if I try to replace M101 to M3 or M106 to A50 don't work, any suggestions?

What is the python line of code you tried for M101?

What does the original line look like?

Edit: line = line.replace('M101','M1') will fail because it is not the same number of characters.

You could just use sed

You don't have to use completely obfuscated patterns, just simple global substitution ones

$ sed -e 's/M101/M3/'g -e 's/M105/A50/'g -e 's/E/A/'g -e 's/S/P/'g -e 's/T0/;T0/'g -e 's/G28/;G28/'g -e 's/M82/;M82/'g in.ngc > out.ngc

regards

It is a command-line program, run from a terminal. See man sed

If you wanted to run it in a script
# !/bin/bash

for j in *.nc
    {
    sed -i.bak -e 's/M101/M3/'g -e 's/M105/A50/'g -e 's/E/A/'g -e 's/S/P/'g -e 's/T0/;T0/'g -e 's/G28/;G28/'g -e 's/M82/;M82/'g $j
    name='basename $j .nc'
    mv $j $name.ngc	
    }

exit(0)

will convert all the .nc files in the current directory, making a backup of the original with extension .bak
and outputting a file with .ngc extension

You could convert into a filter, but not sure if there is a need, you only have to run it once and it is done.
