Sparkfun Shapeoko not working with Carbide Motion

I bought the Shapeoko Deluxe Kit from Sparkfun:

I was able to make it work with the Universal GCode Sender. But when I try to use the Carbide Motion app in Mac, I always get GRBL Error: Cutter not found. The grbl version I have right now is 1.1f. Any thoughts on the issue?

You have to get a (free of charge) license for Carbide Motion first. The Sparkfun Board is not automatically recofniced as a “real” Shapeoko. The steps for requesting the license can be found here:


Was able to use Carbide Motion app after using the activate code sent to me by the Carbide 3D team. Thanks for your help @reibuehl!
