Error installing Carbide Motion on mac


(Gunter ) #1

I just purchased a Shapeoko 3 but it is yet to be delivered. Planning to prepare for it’s arrival, I downloaded and installed Carbide Create with no problems but I can’t seem to install Carbide Motion. It downloads but once I click on the Carbide Motion icon in Applications, I keep getting the error: “Carbide Motion quit unexpectedly”. I use a Mac running Mojave 10.14.2 which is the latest version.
Can someone help please?

I operate CM on my Mac with Mojave, I use CM build 4.0.412 with no issues. I’m not sure if this is the last version available.

Please try making a new admin account and see if the program installs there. If that doesn’t help, drop us a line at support@carbide3d.com

I’ve run on 10.13.x, 10.14.x without issues. Be aware you can’t do much (well, anything at all, really) until you have a machine for it to connect to.

So do you mean that this error can occur because I don’t have the machine plugged in?

It wouldn’t surprise me too much. Not saying it should, but it might be related.
