File Limit for Carbide Motion


(stacey clark) #1

What is the file size limit for (gcode) load into Carbide Motion? I have attempted to load some files larger than 20 MB and they don’t load, nor to I receive any sort of message indicating why. The only thing I can assume is that there is a limit that I am not aware of and no error handling for such a scenario.
Does anyone know?

I’m hoping somebody has this answer.

I know a 9 MB file will work, but CM chokes, so I think it is somewhere near there.

@robgrz ???

Thanks Rich; I have had 9 work as well, in fact this very file was 9.2 MB and I made a couple tool changes and suddenly it was over 20MB, then, when I attempt to load it I get no response from Motion it is idling calmly as though I attempted nothing.
