Bad character "%"

Post by paulnd » Mon Jun 30, 2014 5:21 pm


I use Vectric Aspire to generate a gcode file for LinuxCNC and Aspire starts and ends the file with a "%". Autoleveller inserts the probing routine before the "%" which then causes a bad character error in LinuxCNC because the start "%" is in the wrong place.

All seems to be ok if I manually delete the "%" or move it back to the start of the file.

thanks Paul,

I have logged it, and will fix it in the next release. Software to probe and adjust a GCode file for PCB's or any probe-able surface. A short guide to setting up the probe.
