Won't load G Code

Postby Brew Worx » Tue Dec 12, 2017 7:44 pm

Hey Guys,

Not a total tech guy here but I can operate the systems. Just not good at troubleshooting software issues....

I am not seeing the G Code load up in Mach 3 correctly after I chose the program. It loads up a bunch of default lines but nothing like it has for 3 years.

I attached a pic of the screen of the bits loaded up.

Super busy time of the year and Mach chooses this time to play hooky......

Any advice???

More Info.

I wrote a new program and thought it was the new part i was trying to make. After a few attempts to redo the same work, I tried a tried and true file I have made a dozen time. same result.

Thanks for any advice in advance....

Are you sure you opened the post processed g-code file? That text looks a lot like the SheetCam configuration settings file.

That is not G-Code. You are opening the wrong file.

There is nothing in that file you posted that has any G-Code in it.
