    Default File Running is in Metric mode?

    I set up a grid pattern in VCarve Pro. When I go to cut the file in shopbot, a box pops up and says "The file you are running is written for use in metric mode. Currently your software is set up for inches." I've double checked my material set up, bits, etc in VCarve and everything shows as inches. Am i missing something? Thanks

    Using a metric post processor to save the file?

    That was it. When I saved my toolpath, I did not realize that there was the .sbh for inches and mm. I would just see the .sbh pop up and just clicked save..... thanks for reaching out!

    Oh geez, thank you both! I upgraded my vCarve Pro and went to cut a file when the same message popped up. You saved my hair from being pulled out.
