Thanks for your help with that

Hi Jacques,

What machine model are you trying to drive using Carbide Motion and how old is it ?
If this is an old Shapeoko it may not have been upgraded to GRBL 1.1, which is now required.

(p.s. si jamais tu parles français et que c’est plus facile qu’en anglais, n’hésite pas à me faire un message privé)

shapeoko 3 xl +or- 2016

Your machine has Grbl 0.9 installed, so you will need to update to Grbl 1.1 in order to use CM5.

Until then, CM368 is available at:

Contact us at if you wish to update so as to use newer accessories (you’ll need a recent 64-bit Windows or Mac OS X OS)

OK thank you , I have a 64 bit windows so i’ll contact support see if I can handle an upgrade
