G-code vs Grbl


I am trying to carve using grayscale relief photos.

I can’t get Estlcam to work so, I looked at other programs on YouTube.

I found one from scorchworks that looked very user friendly but, it gives .ngc as a g-code and it does not want to work on our setup, or I could be doing something wrong?

I looked on the net for solutions and found a couple saying that as its all gcode all you have to do is rename the file. Is it as simple as this?

Has anyone and I’m sure I can’t be the first, done this sort of carving and could give me step by step instructions please.


Rename the ngc to gcode. Should work.
