When I save my G-Code in VCarve I use the X-Carve post processor. I was working on a job and saved the roughing, finish and profile. I was able to open the roughing and finish pass but when I tried to import the profile I receive this message. The profile was a trace of a model, if I draw a circle and then save that as a profile using the XCarve PP it works in Easel.
Does anybody know why I’m receiving this message?
Now I did some research through the forums and learned a few things so I tried using the Easel post processor for the profile cut but it saves it as an NC file and not GCode file.
What am I doing wrong?
and if the NC file will work in Easel will the NC file work in PicSender?
I’m using the one that was in vcarve. Then when i went to import gcode I clicked on vetric, downloaded the post processor and put it into a folder in vcarve. Is that the one you want? After I put the pp in the folder I was able to see the easel pp. I had to restart the program.
Yes the GCode file was done with the XCarve PP, the one I have always used to save my GCode from VCarve. My roughing and finish pass I could import into Easel, the profile I couldn’t import. That’s when I received the invalid GCode message. Here is the PP that Vetrics sent me in case someone else needs it.
In VCarve go to File, Open Application Data Folder, then put the Easel PP in the PostP folder
So you used the downloaded from Inventables one (Easel) for the “Profile1.nc” and then the X-Carve one for the bad file, and then Vectric sent you another version of Easel’s?
Looks like they messed up the X-Carve one on an upgrade. I would just pick one of the “Easel” ones and stick with it when using Easel.
