i did open it on ncviewer, and all good, also im able to open the folders gcodeForTesting but fr some reason wene try to open the sled the GC crashes.
Good advice, i did try it but i can not find the .ini file to uploded to the web control serttings, can you give me a hint?
This thread should have answers for all different operating systems:
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)
WebControl and GroundControl are two different software packages that do the same thing.
If you do not have a groundcontrol.ini file from before then you just need to run calibration and it will create a new one.
On top menu select Help -> Getting started
And start from “If you are starting anew:”
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
the help Will be apreciated
This is because of a recent change that allowed you to select multiple files… I need to work on the code a bit to populate the text in that box. But as you discovered, it did upload.
Which version of webcontrol are you using? Also, if you go to File-> Edit/View Gcode do you see gcode there?
@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.
go to help->about and report the version number directly under the WebControl title.
Im using webcontrol-0.929-win64-singledirectory
Try upgrading to v0.931. Go to Help->Update and pick the one in blue.
i clik on the update botton for v0.931, but nothing whapen!!
give it time.
if there is a ‘terminal’ window (i.e., command prompt) open, click it and see if you see any messages scrolling. If not, then you’ll need to download it directly from github. We made a change that seemed to break upgrades. 0.931 is supposed to fix it.
