Please find a copy attached.

HI I tried and I keep getting error messages what program do you use to open zip files
Usually the facility is built into the OS.
If you’re using Windows, then 7zip: http://www.7-zip.org/
For a Mac, Stuffit Expander: http://my.smithmicro.com/stuffit-expander-mac.html
I might be looking for the drawing but it will not appear in the window7—is it only loaded when connected to the router?
Correct. The .nc files are just G-Code — load them into Carbide Motion, then send them to the machine — in the case of the “Hello World” files, they will draw the Shapeoko logo and then shade it in. While some communication / control programs have previewing capabilities, CM doesn’t.
To preview .nc files, use a tool for that — list of them here: https://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Communication_/_Control
