Re open .gm file?

Post by 442weld »

Is there a way to re open a .gm file into the torchmate program?

I made a file, loaded it into the plasma but realized I needed to tweak the program a little bit can’t figure out how to re open that file into the torchmate program.

What program generates your .gm files? Are you able to attach one of these files in a reply here? I am not familiar with .gm.

Rename the .gm to .nc, then you can import the file into TM Cad and it will show up as a line drawing. You will need to delete the lead-in/outs as well as the objects will be slightly bigger or smaller depending on the kerf compensation.
