I would gladly share the file but I don’t know how. I’m obviously not pc literate. I am using V-Carve Pro. But I am far from pro.

Hello David,

Just save the GCode which you probably already did since you created on for yourself then hit the “Upload” button in this window (image below) and click insert and it will attach the file to your reply.

Dusty…I love this forum and watch it regularly and there is a lot to learn. I have to laugh and congratulate you as a PRO! i thank you for sharing, I fought my machine as a rookie struggling to figure out the AMP versus VOLT as stall parameters and finally today got the right combination and my machine homing is perfect!
Thanks Alex for helping and sharing your advice.

Anyone have a .crv vectric file for these?

I would suggest messaging the OP for the native.crv file.

Dave did I leave the wrong files
What is OP and native crv file

OP = Original poster. Native file = The default file format that a software application is designed to work with.

SPES wanted the original file/s rather than just the gcode (.ngc) files you posted.

Didn’t your Mom ever tell you: “Never run gcode you didn’t create”.

I could swear the Onefinity gods have mentioned that more than once.

But here they are saying to “share the file”.

So what if anything do I or anyone else who may want to download
and use his file do to make sure it will run OK on our machines.

Sharing the source file and folks generating their own gcode is the best way. Otherwise you need the same exact bits, machine settings, spindle etc or you may get surprise results

Right, I was referring to the .ngc files originally uploaded.

Bob,
I am so sorry if I caused you harm, I was only attempting to be cooperative and helpful.
Sorry Dave

No harm done. I asked why Onefinity was saying upload the file
when they recommend not running code created by someone else.

Tried to add a little humor with the ‘just say no’ line but I guess
it didn’t come across as funny as I thought it would.

I like your clamp rack idea and if I had those clamps I would make one.

I’m still waiting for my machine and learning so I hope this isn’t a dumb question. If all of the tool paths use the same tool in this file (1/8" End Mill), what is the harm in saving all of them using ‘Visible toolpaths to one file’. Am I missing something obvious?
