gcode file

Postby Paperboy » Sat Jun 29, 2019 1:56 am

Hi, is there a way to generate a vcarve file from a gcode file?? I had a guy make a cool carve up and sent me the file, only to find out he didn't save the vcarve file and only the gcode file. And of course I cannot see anything of what he used for the carve. Thanks, I'm sure this has been asked a million times, TIA
