Having issues loading GCode
« on: May 21, 2019, 09:09:33 AM »
Hello,
I'm new to all this. Built a 5x10 plasma table in my shop this month. did first test cuts last weekend. After the test cuts I purchased the license for both Lazycam and Mach 3. I'm running windows 10 on my PC. Ran fine for a handful of cuts. Tried making some adjustments to clean up the cuts. When I upload the new GCode into Mach 3 I get a "Bad Character" error message pointing at N30.
"N30 {SPINDLE}(PLasma On).
The Gcode that worked was
 N30 was G28.1 (Probe for Stock).

thank you. How do I get in to modify it? Is it a setting in Lazycam?
