    Default Artcam 2008 4th axis

    I made 4 axes for my cnc. I run CNC with mach3 program. I tried to make the G code for the 4th axis in Artcam2008, but I do not know which postprocessor to choose? 4th axis I have X-axis oriented. G code I tried to do as instructed from the video on youtube . Artcam makes a g code and makes the simulation correct but does not enter the A axis into the file with g code.

    Because you only have a postprocessor for 3 axes! Need postprocessor for 4 axes!

    When creating a milling path, (Z level roughing) for 4 A axis, how to define Z Slices? If I leave Avtomatic, it begins to milling 0.5mm (the material allowance I have set is 0.5mm) above the center of the cylinder and not at the height of the cylinder.
