How can I get help with Kirimoto? Worked a couple a few times but now it won't let me slice. Says no processes selected.
All very clunky.

    Hi Bruce,  can you post a screenshot of the model that won't slice?  What type of manufacturing are you trying to create a slice for?

    Thanks for responding mcheli_academic ,much appreciated.
    I just want to use the Kirimoto for my high school woodwork students.
    I've succeeded in generating g code from my Onshape models by exporting them to fusion 360 as Rhino or Parasolid files.
    It'll be a lot more convenient if my students can send me a g code file straight out of Kirimoto.
    They will be doing simple logos with text in them.
    I was able to generate about ten g codes using Kirimoto then it just quit playing ball. When I now attempt a slice and export there are just three or four commands in the document.
    In the g code files I first made the router motor wouldn't start but I was able to put the start spindle command in the g code document and that fixed it.

    I'll see if I can sort an image of the type of thing I have been experimenting with.
    I created g code in Kirimoto for the one that I will show you but when I attempted to generate g code from the sale model later it just wouldn't work. Got various popups including 'no processes selected'.

    I tried cancelling the Kirimoto in Onshape and reloading it but it just saved all my settings. Ditto when I set up an new Onshape account with a different username etc.

    Hi @bruce_sutherland , Can you make your Onshape document public and post it or share it with me ([email protected])?  It's still unclear to me what might be troublesome about that part or that it would stop working after you've already done a few successfully.
