Cannot Save and re-open RDWorks Files

Post by Steve Lynch » Sat Feb 24, 2018 9:26 am

Hello! I'm brand new here. My name is Steve, and I run a small Fab shop in Atlanta Ga. I've recently added a 60 watt chinese Co2 laser for cutting small parts that my CNC just pushes around the table. I'm having a heck of a time with RD Works right now, as I cannot save a file and re-open it.

Anything i save as an .RLD file will not re-open if i try to load it. I get the message "file format error" every time.

I am using the Bosslaser RD Works from their site, as it seems a tad less "Chinese"

The version my laser cutter company gave me has the same issue.

I'm just stumped.

I've been searching the forums here, and everything I search either tells me I'm using too many common words, or I just get zero results. I'll continue reading posts, but I wondered if anyone knows what my issue might be?

Thanks so much! Glad I found this forum.. Lots to read and learn!
