    UG NX4 PostProcessor for Sodick EX21 A320D

    Does anyone know if it's possible to use UG NX4's build post processor to work with a Sodick EX21 A320D? We do simple 2D WEDM.

    I am currently still messing around with building the .cl file and running through
    ICAM CAM-POST to get the .nc file and taking that physically out to the machine on floppy disk (on Japan DOS)

    Thanks,
    Chris

    yes you can, but you need to modify the post to get the output in desired format.
    I am using a NX4 4-axis wedm post to our Sodick wedm AQ325 with a LQ1W controller. unfortunately the RS232 port is damaged for file transfer so i normally print out the file and manually input to the controller. Our wedm programs are not more than couple of pages. Have a look at the attached file. this is a output from NX4.

    Thanks, That looks simlar to the .ptp I get except mine is preceeded by N001 lines. We need to rename the file to .nc and then put it on a Japanese formatted DOS disk and then it works. I will have to look at the header info on the PP that does work vs. the NX post. Maybe it's just simple enough to strip the line numbers and fix the headers.

    Thanks,
    Chris
