Im new to this CNC thing but im looking forward to improve my skils, and learn from you guys. Im having trouble when opening the gcode file cretaed from makercam.com on GC, for some reasson the GC shut down every time that i try to open the only gcode file that i have trough Launch Ground Control.
Hi thanks for the riply in this virus crisis.
the gcode that im using is the sled that comes free to download in the webpage, im using a Arduino Mega 2560 that comes standard with the maker made cnc kit (https://www.makermadecnc.com/product/maslow-cnc-ready-to-ship/)
the GC Iis GroundControl-Windows.Portable.v1.26
I relly want to start building things, but the GC keep crashing every time that i try to open a .nc file done eather on makercam, Easel or any other, i eaven try to convert a .dxf file from autocad to makercam and then to .nc but didnt worked eather.
The only files that im able to opnen in GC and sucsefully cut on the machine are the ones standard with the GC, a gear and a dragon part (i think)
Ok, as @tinker and @bar said, instead of trying to solve the GC problem that i have, i just try to open the files trough WebControl, but due to my rooki status im find some troubles that i list here in order.
1.- Couldnt find the .ini file, but it wasnt fatal i just did the calibration again.
2- Once the Web Control was calibrated i was unable to upload files, or at leat i dont know if im doing it right, i go to, g-code>upload file>select file to upload ( but every time that i seelect a .nc file it dosnt appear in the upload window that im using.
3.-Thinking that mabe the file it is uploaded but i just dont show on the window i go to G-code>open>select file and i can se how the file that i selected is on the text box, then i go to sumbit but i dosnt open on the webcontrol
@Fede19, please upload the gcode files you are trying. Use the “up arrow” icon in comment editor (almost in middle of menu bar).
but every time that i seelect a .nc file it dosnt appear in the upload window that im using.
When you upload a file in Webcontrol it should open immediately and display the cutting paths. The ‘choose file’ text may not get replaced with filename after selecting the file. But when you click submit it should upload and open it.
i go to G-code>open>select file and i can se how the file that i selected is on the text box, then i go to sumbit but i dosnt open on the webcontrol
If the file is listed there; that means it was uploaded. I suspect that there is a problem with the file.
