I am just getting started using Fusion 360 and can get the code to the X-carve at all using the UGS. It seems to connect becuase when I hit connect the controller makes a noise and the lights shift but that is it. When I try to transfer a file it stops a line 20 every time.
What kind of error is generated?
What version of UGS?
Can you post the first 30 lines of your gcode?

The first issue I can see is you’re using a really old version of UGS. The current version in that issue of UGS is v1.0.9. A lot of people are using the latest which is v2.0, which is still under development but nightly stable builds are available for download at https://winder.ci.cloudbees.com/job/UGS/ Click on the “Latest Stable Build”, download the UniversalGcodeSender.zip file and install it.
It appears that you get an error when it processes the line defining arc movements. It could be the old UGS you have had issues in that area.
I may be mis remembering here, but I think others have had issues with true arcs before (way back during the summer, i think). I think it had something to do with the fact that the G-shield doesn’t handle them well. IIRC it does arcs as a series of small segments that look like an arc. I wonder if this combined with the old software is part of the problem. Do a little searching around here about arcs, and you may find something.
