  • Post Processor Error VCarve Pro V10


    I just tried to use the new multiple clearance tool option on VCarve Pro V10. I kept getting a "syntax" and "file not found" error when I tried to load in into WinCNC on my Stinger 3. I ran the clearance tool function on V9.5 and it ran just fine. The engrave function also didn't work for single tool engraving on V10 either. Any suggestions?

    Are you on the latest .07 release? It just came out a few days ago and fixes a bunch of issues that caused them to pull back .016.

      1) What was the name of the file?

      2) What post processor did you select?

        The post processor is CAMaster ToolchangeINCH (*.tap)

        The file name is coditotem9.5.tap

        It appears the Syntax Error or File Not Found message pops up on the tool change function. I tested the file with no tool change (no clearance) and it runs fine. (SingleToolINC (*.tap))

          I'm not sure what this means

            What does it say at the top left of the software.
            It will tell you what version you're using.

            If you have something different click on the "help" tab and select the "Check fo updates" option

              It means that your machine is setup for single tool operation. No ATC or FTC (or FTC enabled)
              Use the Single tool postP

              Remove the punctuation from your file name.(extra period) dash and underscore are supported, no others

                I had FTC enabled on my machine a few months ago and it ran once yesterday but now it doesn't run with any FTC operations, even when I correct the file name as you instructed. It appears I'll need to contact support to set it up again?

                  That is a question for tech support

                    What's the tool number? I can't remember what the error message is if a tool is greater than ten. I have this tool renumber gadget I wrote that fixes this. Gary LOVES it.

                      I just got off the phone with Michael at tech support. It was indeed the incorrect tool number. The software designated the first tool as "0" which the system won't recognize. Michael also showed me how to run the simulation to look for possible errors. Simple fix and I just learnt a few new techniques!
