I tried updating my PP with the changes for the helical are moves but the gcode is still a large file. Maybe I am missing something.

Does the job have toolpaths that would benefit?

Haven't upgraded to 9.5 yet so want to know if there is a post processor that works with Mach4 yet (Mach4 uses one of the Fanuc standards and is different than Mach3) and whether you can specifiy the rotary drive as 'C' rather than X,Y,Z,A?

TIA

Any Mach3 code from Vectric software should run fine in Mach4. It's not much different, accept for some canned cycles, which Vectric doesn't use anyway.

You can easily modify the post to swap the C axis for the A axis.

Yes, the job has spiral ramps which I use a lot.

I can see the new g-code in the file but it seems that the old code is still in the file.
