    If you are running Mach3 on your machine, then you should use Mach2_3_ ... post processor as it generates G-code that suits Mach3 "slang"
    On your CAM computer you generate the G-code using above mentioned PP and transfer the G-code file (.tap) to your CNC computer.

    I think that Velox uses ordinary Mach3 so there should be nothing special. Mach3 does NOT use any post processor. It only generates MOTION according to the supplied G-code.

    Make no mistake between my personality and my attitude.
    My personality is who I am. My attitude depends on who you are.

    Just open your program in Notepad or MS Word and save it as text file, text will run on almost any control if this does not work your program has some configuration or format problem

    Cut and paste your program here
