Postby deltagroove » Thu Oct 27, 2016 2:39 am

I am a nube, so sorry if this has been answered and I don't see it.. it seems that the post processors are machine specific, I don't have the shark HD4 in my processor list? I made a file and tried it the machine did nothing I tried the Gcode inch tap but no go , also I bought the laser bundle but don't see how to select it as a tool ?? first of many questions thanks in advance!!

It's the same in Windows 10 as in any other version of Windows.

Go to Open Application Data Folder on the File menu and then move the Post Processor file you downloaded from NextWave into the PostP folder.
