Mach3 and Dropbox
« on: February 27, 2015, 06:07:40 PM »
I want to store all my machining files on dropbox and then load them straight into mach3 from there. but it would seem mach3 doesn't work with dropbox

is there a way to get mach3 to work with dropbox?

If you don't want to have any problems, then you should only run g-code files from the local hard drive. Even running them from a flash drive can cause problems.

Many people do have problems doing that. It's a known issue.
