    I'm using Dmap2gcode to generate 3d gcode from a grayscale emiage. when I start the project in openbuild control I get a error code 20. What do I need to get it running? I have attached the file.

    G64 isnt supported. Change your first line from

    Code:
    G17 G90 G64 P0.001 M3 S3000
    To

    Code:
    G17 G90 M3 S3000
    I'm not familar with Dmap2gcode so there might be other issues I dont see. Basically you need a post processor that supports grbl: gnea/grbl

    I just installed it. If you go into settings, you can change the header so it doesnt output the G54 P0.001 codes.

    I bet those drinks are well mixed!

    On the original point, some controllers throw an error and allow you to press go to continue - Grbl Panel, for example.

    Also, DMap2gcode has common code with F-Engrave which has the same issue.

    I think some allow you to even ignore them.
