I assume your using Mach3? http://www.machsupport.com/forum/ind...ic,4166.0.html
Do you have any specific problems when using generic or fanuc post?
Anyone know the best post processor to use with Mastercam X for the Taig Mill.
Not huge problems using Fanuc , but I get these blocks at the beginning of the code that throws the axis out to 10 beyond the scope of the Taig and I attributed it to the post processor.
/ N106 G28 X0. Y0.
/ N108 G92 X10. Y10. Z-10.
The first line will go to machine coordinates 0, 0 (wiki). Which if you haven't set via home switches, will be some random location. Of course this command is unnecessary if you don't use home switches. Second one, I'm not sure what its for but I guess it overrides your work coordinates after you've zeroed?
It looks like the mach3 post doesn't produce these. Heres what I got for a single drill:
So to try it, unzip, paste in your mastercam/mill/posts folder.N100 G00 G17 G20 G40 G49 G80 G90
N110 T1 M06 ( 1/8 DRILL)
N120 (MAX - Z1.)
N130 (MIN - Z-1.)
N140 G00 Z1.
N150 G00 X-1.9729 Y-.1127 S666 M03
N160 G99 G81 Z-1. R1. F5.
Then you should be able to add it via settings > control def manager.
If it says something about updating: Settings > run user app, browse to mastercam/chooks/UpdatePost.dll. Click select post, select mach3b.pst, ok
