@Jim Gu7thrieYou might find that you can get rid of the Unix returns in the post processor of Carbide Create. I don't know the software but I suspect that its post-processor is intended to deal with the a large amount of the machine controllers around, some of which might be looking for Unix returns.
Thanks. I've already tried changing the gcode post-processor to GRBL, but it still outputs Unix LF instead of CRLF. The files open fine in the GRBL/Candle onscreen USB controller, but not on the machine from the SD card.
It's not a problem now I know, and I can include a one-click file conversion utility in Templot if necessary.
The free 2.5D version of Carbide Create is a clunky thing to use, its main purpose seems to be as a sales aid for Carbide3D's (expensive) milling cutters. But it will do what we want, if the idea of CNC milled timbers comes to anything.
