    Converting to an EIA. file

    Hello guys,

    We just bought a 2008 510c-2 nexus matrix. It does not read our programs generated from Gibbs. I called Mazak they said we have to convert the file to an EIA. file The person I spoke to said all we had to do was to change it, well how do we change it we tried everything? Any helpwould be greatly appreciated!

    Rename the file to .eia in your Windows explorer

    Right click and pick rename.

    In GibbsCAM, go to:

    File (Tab)

    Under File Extensions, you can change the Post: from NCF to EIA. Now every time you post, it will automatically post as an EIA.
    I was concerned that the EIA file extension would not work on the rest of our machines (Mori's, Haas, etc...) but all of our machines accept EIA's.
