    Unhappy I'm new to CNC. Can you help me get the correct post processor for my machine?

    It's an ESAB. Old one. Plasma. I have an example of a .cnc file that works in raw gcode output: [url]https://pastebin.com/arr9WJt0[/url] The person we normally have cut out parts is in jail, so I need to figure out how to do this on my own. He used solid works and pronest 8 to generate the file. I managed to get a hypertherm post processor setup in fusion 360 and have created the part design in rhinoceros 5 output as .dxf. It created this: [url]https://pastebin.com/B1WqetWh[/url] I was told by a professional in Canada that I need to locate the specific post processor for the machine. Again, totally green, don't know quite what I'm doing, but I think I might be able to wing it. Is there not a way to customize the output I generated from fusion 360 and tailor it to the settings (gcode) within the file that works? I.e., [url]https://pastebin.com/arr9WJt0[/url]

    Not sure if you solved this yet, but if you check out this video it shows how easy it is to edit a post:

    Doesn't hurt to know a bit about javascript, but you can figure out what's going on pretty easily.

    Starting a post from scratch won't be so easy, but just find one that's kind of close and make the edits you need.

    Hope this helps,

    Dan
