"an unnamed file was not found"
« on: October 10, 2009, 10:45:18 PM »
I've started getting the pop up message "an unnamed file was not found".  This happens in conjunction with trying to open a file and no image comes on the screen and though the G-code loads, the highlighted cursor jumps to line 8 or 12 and can't be rewound or started from any other line.  The G-code is generated in BobCADCAM and I've reinstalled their post processor for Mach 3 but it doesn't seem to help.  This only happens on certain files.  Others I can open and run fine.  Any ideas?

OK.  Here's one file that won't run.

I get an error also, but a different one. Mine is "Radius to end of arc differs from radius to startline 7". Your code does not have a "Y" position before the G3, so Mach is really at a loss as to what to do. I simply added a "Y0.0" on line 6. There is also an error on line 170. It reads "N170M) M5 (tool change .5 straight rough)" Take out the "M)" after N170.

Thank you Sam.  I did catch the error on line 170 and edited it on the fly in Mach 3.  It was supposed to be M0 M5 (program stop, spindle stop).  The file I posted was saved on the computer I draw on and hadn't been edited yet.  The missing y value on line 6 is interesting.  Don't know why the program didn't generate it.  I will try your fix tomorrow.  Time for sleep now.
