Issue with v7 & Shark compiler?

Post by robfischesser »

I'm a fairly new user. I recently upgraded to Vectric Pro v7 and created a project. The generated .tap file caused the complier on my Shark Mako CNC to error and stop loading the Gcode. I used this machine before with v6.5 with no problems, any ideas?
Is there a new driver for the Shark and v7?
Is this a driver, v7 or project problem? how can I troubleshoot this to determine the cause?

Which Post Processor are you using? The same one as in v6.5?

There is an update available for VCP 7.0. I had a problem with a pocket corner radius that was the same as the cutter radius when I ran the part on my Shark, but the update solved it.

Click Help/Check for Updates in VCarve to see if the update is available. If you've only just upgraded I would have thought you should have the latest version but it's definitely worth a look.
