Won't load G Code

Post by 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???

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.
