I am fairly new to CNC, and have been using Easel as a gcode sender on the machine manufacturer’s recommendation. Previously it’s worked well. My last project was in early January.
Today, though, when I try to upload a gcode file, the message box saying “G-code import Validating…” appears, but it remains on the screen and nothing happens.
It’s hard to see how the gcode itself could be the problem, since the gcode files I’ve previously uploaded now cause the same behaviour … unless there’s been a change to the gcode format requirements in the past six weeks?
Another error I’ve just started seeing today is the cryptic “b is null,” but I haven’t figured out exactly what conditions cause that; it may just be the result of corrupt, incompletely imported gcode files.
Anyhow, the main error (freezing up while validating the imported gcode) appears on Windows in Firefox, and on Linux Mint in Firefox and Chrome, so I don’t think it’s a platform issue.
Thanks for any advice!
