Can't generate toolpaths

I'm using makercam for the first time and I'm following the tutorial (http://www.makercam.com/tutorial.html). When I click on CAM > Calculate All nothing happens. I'm using Chrome browser.

Small photos in the instructions

It would be nice if I could click on the thumbnail photos in the instructions and have the picture blow up to a bigger size. It's very difficult looking at these little pictures. Are their bigger versions somewhere?

Re: Wiring options

I didn't get any M3 x 16 screws for the terminal blocks. Are these supposed to be included in the kit? I agree with the OP; the instructions are a bit confusing. I think it would be better to just add the terminal block mounting instructions to the end of of the carriage instructions. Something like...
