Is there a way to use Lightburn to drill, instead of using laser?

Hello passionate lightburn users

I am a new user of LightBurn in France and I would like to know if this software can also generate the code for using my CNC with a milling machine? I am currently using it with a 5w laser and it works very well, however, my CNC is more used as a milling machine and I would like to know if this mode is supported by the software, in an option?

Thank you for your support,

Look at the previous Feature Requests for this functionality and upvote

No point upvoting a feature request for a “feature” that’s already being developed as a new piece of software called “Millmage”. Timeline not announced but in development by the team that brought you Lightburn.

I also have a CNC machine. I know there are lots of folks that have a CNC machine and have added a laser engraver to the CNC machine and use Lightburn to control the CNC machine when using the laser. But i dont believe they use Lightburn when using it as a CNC machine.

Like a 3018 with laser option. Lightburn has very minimal Zaxis control, so it is not suitable for a Mill unless you are interested in a lot of Gcode editing. Lightburn has heard our cries, including mine, and MillMage will be a big hit.
