Run a .txt file on Carbide Motion?

I have a g code saved in a .txt file format that I would like to run on Carbide Motion. When I try to load the file .txt does not appear as one of the supported file types. Anyone know how to get a .txt file into CM?

Change the .txt to a supported extension, .nc, .gco or maybe .gcode

If we were running this out of notepad, how would we change this?

If you can’t change the extension directly…
Save as → Choose “All Files” → Add .nc to the file name


You can add .nc to the filetypes handled by Notepad, or see:
