Error (1) error in line 20: arc endpoint error?

I would suggest contacting Vectric tech support — they should be able to guide you through selecting a post processor which works (if they’ll support 7 yr. old software).

I see what your talking about. The area that shows the list of processors for different machines. The one I picked was the default AXYZ 4010 Arcs (inch) (*.nc)

Yes, this is a drop-down list which shows up when you use the “Save” button to save your toolpath.
See this Vectric page.

There will be a long list of post-processors there, and you will need to find one that is suitable for use on a Nomad, so Will’s advice to contact Vectric support is your best bet, because Aspire version 4 may not have included a suitable post-processor at the time. BUT, it probably supported adding post-processor files, so there is hope. Best case scenario, the current Shapeoko/Nomad post-processor would be backwards compatible with Aspire 4, but I don’t know that for a fact, Vectric support will know

Do you have one named something like “GRBL” in the list maybe ?

No unfortunately, the list is huge though. Thanks for the advise, I already understand this a bit more. Guess switching to mm would be a waste of time with that same default processor. I may just upgrade to Aspire’s Cut2D if its compatible.

Thanks for the help guys, I’m super impressed by how fast you guys get back with customers.

Seems there is one listed here about 5 replies down. Its a Grbl post processor for VCarve. Would that work for any Grbl systems?

So, this would probably work, but that post is from 2019, so if you are going to test something with your “old” Aspire 4 software, you might as well try the fancy VCarve/Aspire post-processor that our own @neilferreri created for the Shapeoko: (1.4 KB)

I only ever used it on a Shapeoko not a Nomad, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work.

You can give a try, it’s worth a shot and will not break anything in Aspire if it is not compatible:

  • unzip the file above to get the uncompressed Grbl_mm_TC.pp file
  • open Aspire
  • in the File menu, click on “Open Application Data folder” (assuming your old Aspire version has this entry?), it will open a file explorer at the location where the Aspire post-processors are stored.
  • there should be a “PostP” subdirectory there, navigate into that directory and copy the Grbl_mm_TC.pp file there
  • close and restart Aspire: if you go back to the Save button, you should now see of “Grbl(mm) TOOLCHANGE (*.nc)” entry in the long list, select that and save the G-code file.

I’m writing this having never had a look at Aspire 4, so it may just not be possible, but let’s see…
(that, or you can also wait for Vectric’s support response, obviously! :slight_smile: )


Thank you sir, I will give it a try and let you guys know how it goes. Seth
