I’m saving a Gcode file from a Vcarve project. I don’t know which Post Processor CM uses. According to the VCarve Forum, I should select either the “Shapeoko Inch” or the “Gcode inch” PP before I save my Gcode file to disk.
Doing so produces a file with the extension of either “.gcode” for the “Shapeoko Inch” PP or “.tap” for the"Gcode Inch" PP.
Both files open with Notepad and display what looks like nearly identical Gcode format with a couple minor exceptions…
“Shapeoko Inch” begins with
“Gcode Inch” begins with
I understand these codes and know that the G20 would have been redundant in the “Gcode Inch” file.
Other than that the only other difference between the two was…
“Shapeoko Inch” ended with M02
"Gcode Inch" ended with M30.
So I guess my question is… Can I just change the filename extension to “.nc” to make either of them acceptable to Carbide Motion?
