    Running a gcode output file in the computer

    I am an Anvil Express user. Sometimes I have to delete/insert some lines in the post processed file of a program output. Is there a program that can read the program output (g code) and run it in a graphical mode so I can see if I made an error in the edition process? Am I asking to much?

    My old TOS machine with a Dynapath control can run the program in a primitive graphical form without moving servos or the spindle but my MAS CNC machine does not have this feature.

    For example, Mastercam can generate the file to machine a part. This file can be loaded in another program to see it running? Which program would it be?

    Best regards.

    Hi Palafox,

    Are you still running Anvil Express? if so Anvil has it's own graphical toolpath verify called Anvil Verify that is an option when you load the software at installation. You can also run other third party G-code simulators, a good one is seeNC Mill.

    If you are still using AE please let me know, I use it at times with a company here in oz.
