Editing the CNCProcessor.cfg File

The CNC Processor configuration file contains the values necessary to adjust the machine lube settings.

Where to find it in CNC Bender

The configuration is displayed in an editor in the Low Level menu, CNC Processor CFG tab.

If you edit the values in this editor, be sure to keep the equals signs in the setup, and be careful to enter valid values. For example, for duration values, enter only whole numbers (no text).

Then save the data to disk in order to store the changes made.

Where to find it on the Hard Disk

The file is available in the c:\cnc\config folder in the file "CNCProcessor.cfg". A text editor can be used to change the file. Only change the file this way when CNC Bender is closed.

Remarks and Notes in the Configuration File

Note that remarks may be added to the file with lines preceded by double forward slashes.
