Importing gcode file

Sat Dec 07, 2019 4:26 pm

I cannot figure out how to import a gcode file back into Simplify3D for editing/viewing after I have lost access to the factory file, but still have the gcode file. When I import a gcode file I get the attached message.

Where do I go to find the "profile drop-down list" ? After I hit the "OK" button all I get is a blank screen.

To preview a gcode file.....which is all you can do in S3D....File dropdown menu==>Preview Gcode file

To see your imported profile, open the Edit Process Settings window....and the dropdown list is at the top....Select Profile:
