Hi, There is a problem with the 1.30 PC Tuner installing the NCnetic plugin for Notepad++.
The PC Tuner only looks for a Notepad++ installation on the C: drive.
If Notepad++ is installed on a different drive, the PC Tuner is unable to located the installation.
Otherwise the NCnetic plugin is very nice.

thanks for reporting that. most will have it on the c: drive of course and you can install the plug in 'manually', :D so not a show stopper. ;) next time we are back in the tuner we will add to look for other drives.

Historically a long time user of Notepad++, and yep, did it manually. It works fine. The color coding for the different axes and parameters is nice. Like for other NPP uses.

Nice plugin! Do you know, if the backplot is also available for a lathe?

There is a pro version of the plugin for 4-5 axis machining, you can send an inquiry if he could make a multiaxis version for lathes.

Can you install the plugin without having your machine setup to run cnc12 e.g. I want to run it on a computer not "tuned" to run a machine

Confidence is the feeling you have before you fully understand the situation.
I have CDO. It's like OCD, but the letters are where they should be.

It's a Notepad++ plugin. Other than being able to parse GCode it has no connection to actual machining.

If you can run Notepad++ then you can use the plugin.
