Please use the correct post-processor. See: https://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Commercial_Software#3D_CAM

… And that would be? I’m not sure I understand that response… what post processor SHOULD I be using? I’ve only ever used the Predator processor as it worked with Mach 3 and it is the post processor that comes with BOBCAD… I couldn’t find in either reference in the two links you provided as to which I would need to use to get my files to work With Shapeoko

I see a GRBL post processor on the bobcam website. That would be a good place to start.

What’s wrong with the post-processor in the Grbl_2.zip link at the forum post I linked?
