So I’m in a bind here. I normally use chillipeppr to send g-code to my X-Carve that I generate using Fusion360 CAM, but the file I’m trying to cut right now is too big for chillipeppr to run. The program lags like you wouldn’t believe when I tried, and 10 hours into the cut it gave up and stopped all together. I’m trying to get another program to work, I need this cut to be done this weekend (its for my final for school). I downloaded a few versions of UGS, I can only get 1.04 and 1.06 to actually open (I’m using a mac), and neither of them can actually connect to the machine. They both give error messages when I attempt to open the port that the machine is connected to. They say “unknown application”.
What am I doing wrong? I keep hearing I need driver software, but I can’t find it anywhere, what else do I need to download? What other programs could work? I didn’t have any luck with Bcnc either.
