Parameter flag in Post Processor not sure why

Hello I have an attached file that yesterday was fine. This morning I wanted to change the thickness of the two rectangles width dimensions. I did and received parameter flag in post processor. I couldn't figure it out so I did an edit again and brought back the dims to originally what I had and I'm still getting flagged in post processor. 

What am I doing wrong?


Thank you for your input and advise.

Hello I realize. this must be Fusion 360 101 and yes I'm always learning about this program. This forum. has been very helpful and I appreciate it very much. I enclosing the first 17 lines of the .nc code to offer more information.

Thank you

Thank you. I have attached a file in my initial posting showing that after I create my post processor code there is a yellow triangle symbol just stating "Parameter". When I click on that yellow triangle it should give me an explanation but there's no explanation. I hope this helps. Thank you

Ok, so now I loaded your file, and I get the same.  I thought it would maybe have been related to the personal license, but I have commercial and get the same thing.  There is no explanation in the log.  Hopefully someone else can answer exactly what this is about, sorry, I can't 😞

Hello, @litodrums .
Does this warning appear before post processing NC program, or after?

Do you use Mac, or Windows?

Thank you!

Thank you using Mac platform.

If I understand your question it only show after I perform post process. The design does not show and errors.

I uploaded the file in my initial posting in this thread

Thank you

Thank you I have the decision to redraw this project again. I still do not have an explanation why this happened.
