Hello to all you SurfCAM experts. I am new to surfCAM but have extensive MasterCAM experiance. I am using a Motion Master 5-Axis router to cut large fiberglass Patterns with SurfCAM that only has positional 5-Axis capabilities. From what I understand to accomplish positional machining I need to machine in that specific Cview with Coord:View selected. When I do this and post it the file is wrong it just rotates the Cview selected to the top view and runs in the X Y with Z depth instead of a head rotation and running in the Z Y with X depth. Is there some other parameters I need to change or is my Post Processor Wrong? Any help would be appreciated!!

Don't know what the results you want!
Could you show your scprt and indicate where you want machining!

You just selected the Cview and used 2 Axis or 3 Axis, then the results should be as you talk about!
