gadget not working

Postby Sawnsand » Mon Jan 01, 2018 6:42 pm

V carve Pro 9.012, updated and current… installed the chamfer gadget from the Vectric gadget site.... I select a vector I want to run it on, and this is the message I receive.. "attempt to call a nil value"

....tried restarting, re install numerous times ..keep getting same result

Using Chrome

Any help would be appreciated

The installation path is correct as far as I know. It's only gadgets that have support files or have multiple steps that install into a sub-directory. Simple stand alone ones have always installed in the root folder for the program version in gadgets.

The problem with the nil value is caused by a bit of development code that looks like it's been left in the file by error. If you edit the chamfer.lua file (notepad works fine if you don't have any other editor) and put -- before the line which says require("mobdebug").start() and save the file it will then work
