What is the difference between .crv and .nc files?

.CRV Files

These are Cut2D-Laser project files.

These files can be opened by Cut2D-Laser and contain the vectors, tool-paths, layers etc 

Note: .crv files cannot be sent directly to the Emblaser. It is used to generate a .nc file.


.NC Files

These are cutting or engraving files that can be sent to the Emblaser.

These  contain the commands to instruct the Emblaser on movement and laser power to complete your job.

.nc files can be generated from Cut2D-Laser by 'Saving Toolpaths' or by any other tool-pathing software that can generate gcode compatible with the Emblaser.

Note: .nc files cannot be opened by Cut2D-Laser.
