editing postprocessor

Postby jhowelb » Fri Apr 28, 2017 4:11 pm

No matter how I search I simply can not find any post processor files on my computer.
I need to edit a Mach 3 PP to facilitate a laser burner that I have purchased, Can anybody out there shed some light on this?

The "Editing Post Processor" PDF on the Help menu is no help at all!

The post processors are in a folder call "PostP" to locate the folder in VCP or Aspire click on menu option "File->Open Application Data Folder..."

Yes it is. But it is in the example section p29. Should be in a general section at the beginning of the document.
Best regards

I gave you the answer on your other thread so why start another one afterwards? :?

Thanks highpockets, you were very helpful. I would never have figured it out on my own.
