    Default post processor changing axis name

    Good morning everyone, I have a problem, I have a Daewoo Doosan 2100 with a Fanuc 0i-f and that has a rotative table on axis Z and then the z and x, I'm able to have a proper gcode in Madcam but not in Rhinocam, in Madcam there is the option to tell to postprocessor which is the axe 1, 2, 3 and was easy for me to invert Z and X plus put 2 as multiplier on X because the Fanuc need the Diameters. the only close result i had is to setupo a 4 axis machine then I cancelled the Y in the post processor, but in this way I obtain a gcode that is Z and C and some X but I need X and C and some Z. Is there a way to to tel to postprocessor to call Z as X and X as Z? I'm using a radial tool in my Doosan so basically it is parallel to X axe, while on all the preset machines on rhinocam the axe is parallel to Z. I think there are 2 options available... invert the Z and X axes on postprocessor or find a way to have a tool parallel to X and rotary table on Z. I hope someone can help me...

    Have you asked Mecsoft's tech support about this? That's what they're there for, and free tech support is included with RhinoCAM.

    Yes I asked at the online support some weeks ago, they told there was no way to have a gcode in X C Z and with the orientation as i wanted it,... in the end yesterday evening I manage to do it with a modified 4 axis machine but with a post processor with only X C and Z axes plus some tweacking to change X and Z output and diameters instead of rays, in the end it was not impossible.

    That's great. You should get back with the tech guy and explain how you did it - it might help the next person who has this problem.
