Hello, does anyone have a good way of getting Inventor ( ipt) files somehow to Chillipeppr ? the DWG export does seem to work.

Can you use inventor hsm express plugin to generate gcode?

is that working with shapeoko 2?
What setup did not need to change to have it work with shapeoko ?
How did you solve the Post Processor issue ?

Do you mean that Inventor DWG export doesn’t work? I don’t know Inventor but I find it hard to believe that it’s not able to do a DWG export. I have experienced some odd behavior in the way exporters translates arcs into straight lines but that’s often a export setting issue. What SW do you normally use to generate Gcode?

…ohh sorry Ralf re-read your post and realize that you wrote “does seem to work” not “doesn’t” :slight_smile:

… the strange thing is I can export as DWG. But when I try to open it… even in Illustrator I can not look at the DWG. I tried sawing in older formats but that also does not work. In illustrator I get the message " unsupported file format" I can open other DWG with illustrator no issues just these ones.

I saw that the HMS express plugin has a TinyG Post Processor. So I will try and work with that.
