Fusion and FireControl are the only two softwares that I need, to run the cnc correct?
Lets run through an example:
Make a simple square with a hole in the center inside fusion.
Create a toolpath for square in fusion.
Press the Gcode button in fusion and save to any file of your choice on your computer.
Press the green upload button to find the newly made Gcode file.
Press start in FireControl and let the machine run.
Enjoy your new part.
Well I’m having problems with steps 3 and 5. With step 3 every time i try to save the G code it adds “.failed” at the end. Every single time. Without any explanation. With step 5 firecontrol wont even display the failed file in my file folder. As if it cant find it. But if i go through my file explorer the file is right there.
@nicaDd Okay so take the “Fusion 360 Post v1.6” file (which becomes firecontrol-v1.6). I right click on fusion 360 icon. Press open file location. Then copy the post file into that fusion 360 location? Is that what you mean? Cause I cant find the fusion 360 file in my program files. So I have to right click the 360 icon and press open file location.
Okay so I found the post processor configuration settings in fusion. I changed it from the default to Mach3. Now it doesn’t add “.failed” to the file, and FireControl finds the file. But it can’t run it. Probably being that the code was generated for Mach3. But I can’t find the firecontrol post processor setting. I hate to bug you but I need live feedback.
