J-tech photonics extension

Asked by Erik Engstrom on 2017-01-30

Thank you in advance for your help. Please pardon my ignorant questions, I am learning.
MAC user. OS 10.11.6 & Inkscape .91
I am trying to create G-code file(s) using JTech Photonics extension. When I go to extensions drop down menu, then Generate Laser Gcode, J Tech Photonics Laser Tool, then there is a pop up window, towards the bottom of the window there is a field labeld “directory”. I have not found the correct way to type in the path to a directory so that I may retrieve the gcode file, review the Gcode and then have Printrun import the file. Then I may test run my CNC machine. I would like to put the newly created Gcode file(s) on the desktop. The error code I keep getting says: “Directory does not exist! Please specify existing directory at options tab!” I am guessing this is because I am not using the correct syntax. Thank You

Hi Erik,

sorry, I do not know that extension. It seems to be a custom extension created by a third party. It is not an extension that comes with Inkscape.

The fastest way to get an answer to your question would probably be to ask the author of the extension directly.

Or at least, to be able to help, I'd need to be able to take a look at the code.

But if it's a bug with the extension, then the author will more likely be able to give support and to fix the issue.

Kind Regards,

Can you help with this problem?
