Upgrade from V10.5 to V11.503

Post by mdujardin59 »

When I upgraded from 10.5to 11.5 my Post Processor is not supported. Below is what it tells me...
VCarve Pro

[Configuration PP]
Post_Base is no longer supported. Please update your postto the latest version, or merge it with the base post "Grbl_inch.pp" on line 27 of file.
C:ProgramData\Vectric\VCarve Pro\V11.5\My_PostP\X-Carve_inch.pp Line
Post_Base = "Grbl_inch.pp"

Can someone help me with my issue, Please

As it’s in the MyPost folder I would do someth8ng like this:
  • move everything in the MyPost folder to another folder for safe keeping
  • within 11.5 create a new machine entry selecting a new post processor appropriate to the machine
  • if you have made any changes to the old v10 post you can find the newly created v11.5 for your newly created machine and edit it
Or if Inventables has a specifically created post processor for v11.5 download it and put it in the now empty MyPost folder.

adze,
I followed your direction and the Configuration PP is still showing up.
I have an open build machine 1515, however I am using the Xcontroller to run the programs not the black box that Open Builds sells. Will this make a difference?

adze,
Sorry, I do not have an Open Build. I ordered from Bulk Man 3D the lead CNC machine. My controller is from XCarve. (X-Controller)
This is not in the manufactures drop down list.
Sorry about the confusion on my part.
