How to get g-code out of CC/CM for simulation

I know this was covered in another post somewhere on here, but I can’t seem to find it.

As I recall, there is some way to load the proprietary files that CC makes into CM and then view the g-code, so you can copy/paste it into a text document and then run that through a simulator etc.

Can someone please remind me how to do this?

If memory serves, one:

  • creates the encrypted file in CC
  • opens it in CM
  • then is able to view it, select it, copy it, and paste it into a text editor

Thanks, @WillAdams, but where/how do you view the g-code in CM?

On the “Info” or “Run” pane, just click the file name and it’ll pop up the gcode in a viewer.



Is it “encrypted” or just being stored as binary g-code or binary SVG? I realize that makes no difference to your problem, but encryption seems a bit heavy-handed if that’s the case. :slight_smile:

It’s encrypted because that happened to be the easiest way to swap between text and binary without having create new code to parse a new format.
