    Hey there, the part file loaded from this program does not have a spindle start command .is that the norm for photo v carve. Is there a way to do this automatically...thanks

    Yes, that frequently happens on PhotoVcarve and the ShopBot post processor. You can change the post processor. Look for the file ShopBot_inch.pp in the PostP folder under PhotoVCarve.

    Locate the "Start of File" section. Add the following lines (include the quotes):
    "'Turning router ON"
    "SO,1,1"
    "PAUSE,2"
    "'"

    Under the "End of File" section add:
    "'Turning router OFF"
    "SO,1,0"
