    Default Mastercam X2 post processor for X3

    I am trying to get used with Mastercam X2 and I am interested to know if any one used a post processor of this software for Mach3, optimised for Syil X3 for metric units.

    Thanks in advance

    I could be wrong and I'm traveling the same road as yourself with MasterCAM/SX3, but from what I've read Mach3 seems to work well with the default Fanuc post.

    Hi Peter

    Not really to late. I am working actually my machine for 2d cuts since I bought it and I had lots of work to do working with this way but I want to start to use it with something more advance. Did you try to do something with Mastercam and Syil milling machine?

    humm weird i can get it to create a machine definition?!

    edit: ok does not work for me i seem to be getting the same bug as with the default fanuc post where my machine goes over limit from the home position instead of starting from the work offset

    edit 2: cant get any to work fine they all have bug i guess i am toast, it really sucks since i have access to mcx but i am lacking a good post to use it.

    thx Greg

    edit: the one on the tormach yahoo group seem to be working fine, they have two there one for MCX3 and one for MCX2 MR1 i did not try the one for X3 as i dont have access to it but the one for MCX2 works great on MCX2 SP1

    I've done the post for the Tormach (on the yahoo site), pretty sure it'll work fine for the Syil.
