Your laser should of come with it's own software to run the machine, not Mach 3. Usually you'll need to import either a Bitmap, dxf or ai file, etc., rather than toolpaths created with the Vectric software. You might want to google the K40 Laser and watch some of the videos.

I use Vectric for most of the work then DXF out then DXF into other software. Which I run my laser direct from.
