Help required to run Hello World

Hi All from the UK… Another newby Question sorry for this I know its probably been ask before, re Hello World i’ve extracted the files from the zipped folder but cannot open the files, at first I thought maybe laptop may be on the blink but I have open some other folders I have, and files and its all OK. I have the Shapeoko 3 xl which I have just built so am wondering what I have done wrong.
Has anybody got any ideas that may help. Thank you all in advance for any help you can give me. Steve.

I believe it may be a zip file…

It’s a zip archive located at:

once you download it, when you unzip it, delete the MACOSX folder (it’s metadata and not needed). the files (extra file to add hatching) and (the hello world proper) ought to be in there.

You don’t really open the files, just select them in Carbide Motion and send them — make sure that your computer permissions are set up to allow this.

I cant thank you enough for your quick response, I had read the tutorial several times and either miss read it or miss understood it. I have spent the best part of 2 days trying to work it out, I’m just relieved that the cnc must have been put together ok, ( BUT ONLY TIME WILL TELL ON THAT)
Thank you very much for your help. Maybe one day I will be able to help someone in some way. Thanks again Will. Steve 2
