I just ran projects yesterday and all was fine. Now today I get a pop-up message that Carbide Motion needs V7 files.
Carbide Create Build 757
Carbide Motion Build 618
What could have changed? Are there new updates? If so … Where ?
Thanks for any help ~KAP
You need to File | Save as a v7 file, or write out a .c2d file with Toolpaths from the Toolpath menu.
If you have a v6 file, open it in v7, check the toolpaths and 3D preview and re-save it before sending it to the machine.
CC Pro only saves it as a .c2d file. All my files are from CC Pro 757, is that not V7?
If it worked yesterday why not today?
There is a menu option to export as a v6 file — did you use that?
Post the .c2d file here? (or e-mail it to email@example.com)
One of those files has:
Open both in Carbide Create v7 and resave, then try sending.
Is it this file? Do I have the latest updates of CC Pro & CM?
RUDDER1-8 THK INNER REV-B.c2d (64 KB)
That is a v7 file, and should work in a current version of Carbide Motion.
Thanks for the help and sorry to bother you with such small issues. I did what you said and it worked. I have no idea why it saved it any thing other then a V7 .c2d file. I never used any other file formats.
