    hi all i am having problems with my system i get a error message T1-M6 see picture when using open builds control, universal gcode sender, and ugsplatform nightly version, im using fusion 360 doing a simple face and a 2d adaptive clearing but the system pauses and gives the error when i run the gcode, the only difference is with openbuilds control i can do the integrated flattening/surfacing tool it works so i know the cnc is set up properlyand is working there is just something wrong in the code that these softwares dont agree with but cannot find what the problem is

    i did download source rabbit and everything is fine it accepts gcode from fusion no problem, i want to use openbuilds control or ugs platform as i like the interface etc but i need to get to the bottom of this problem anyone have any ideas

    im a newbie so please be gentle with me :) any info would be much appreciated

    my full spec of machine
    workbee cnc
    arduino uno
    tb6600 drivers

    if you need anymore info on my sysme let me know

    many thanks

    If you mean "before you save the gcode", then yes :)

    Keep in mind that you'll probably run into other errors down the road and you should really take my advice and change your post processor.

    Its not OB control that doesnt like your gcode.... Its Grbl.

    Grbl Only understands some gcode words.
    Fusion is outputting words it does not understand

    When you use a Grbl compatible Post Processor it outputs just words that Grbl understands, therefore, dont overthink it. Install Swarfers Grbl Post Processor and use that, no other plans needed. Thats the one that works

    hi all it works yay!! i had to do a few more steps that wasnt included in the instructions but i worked around it to make it work i might have to actually do a post for this as for a complete noob like myself its kinda complicated and i got lucky as i guessed the files i needed and where to put them had to do some things with fusion and the cloud etc

    thank you sharmstr & Peter Van Der Walt for the info you are amazing !!!!!!!
