Hold down clamps bad link


(Jeff Wimer ) #1

I tried to download the file for the holddown clamps on the following link: http://carbide3d.com/docs/tutorials/shapeoko-clamps/

All it does is open the code in another page. Does not download the file.

Right or control-click on the file and choose to save it. Depending on your web browser you may have to then change the file name / extension so as to have the extension .c2d

Thanks. It took a bit of work, but got it.

I’m having the same problem but my link is downloading into a .c2d file but still will not import into carbide create?

Are you on a Mac or PC?

How are you trying to open the file?

Please post a step-by-step description of:

  • what you are doing
  • what you expect to happen
  • what actually happens

Please note that it is not possible to double-click on a .c2d file and have it open automatically in Carbide Create — you have to open the application and then open the file.

I am on a Mac
ive imported with cc and they are all grayed out, tried the zip file you sent same thing, tried options when opening and selected all files they did give me the option to select but still did not import. I have opened the file then tried to import and every other way I could think of.

The file should simply open. It should be something like:

If that doesn’t work, please let us know the specific point of failure at support@carbide3d.com and note any error messages which you are receiving.

Use caution and double check the ‘Job Setup’ with this project:

In the Job Setup, just above ‘Create Toolpaths’ the Toolpath Zero: Center’ does not match the downloaded project file:
http://docs.carbide3d.com/tutorials/shapeoko-clamps/shapeoko_clamps.zip

This file has the ‘Toolpath Zero’ set to the bottom left. It’s a simple thing, but could cause problems depending on your machine type and clamps used.
