I looked through the forums and instructions multiple times and I must be missing the answer.Thank you for your patience. I am a Mac user and have finished building our new X-carve 1000mm. The build went smoothly until I clicked on “set motor current”. Now I feel like I am in over my head.
I was able to follow along until I got to " Then issue a very long Gcode command for that axis, something like g0x1000.**
How/where do I issue Gcode on a Mac???
Thank you very much for your help
Greg, are you using Easel, Chilipepper, or UGS?
You will need one of these on your Mac before you can issue a Gcode command.
If you are using Easel, you will need to request the ability to send Gcode, since it is in beta testing. Here is the link.
Continuing the discussion from
[request for feedback] Gcode sending through easel:
Good news everyone! We've released a new feature in Easel that allows you to import, validate and visualize g-code generated by other programs, and send it to your X-Carve or Carvey. Currently we support g-code from Fusion 360, MeshCAM, and Vectric products (including V-carve, Cut2D, and Aspire). The post-processors will all be available on the "Import g-code" file menu item.
If you do not use one of those pro…
Thank you Michael,
I just sent in my request. I really appreciate the help!!
You can send single-line commands to the X-Carve from Easel without the gcode import beta access.
Just go to
Machine --> Advanced --> Machine Inspector and you’ll see a dialog box that says “Console” In that box you can enter single line commands like the one you need.
I am/was trying to figure out how to send Gcode via my Mac.
I will try that.
I appreciate the help.
