Post Processor

Post by Sliverfoot »

I have downloaded the "Avid CNC posts for Vectric v1.0" to the PostP folder and copied it into my My_PostP but when I'm in Vectric, save tool paths it isn't in the dropdown list of Post Processors.
What am I doing wrong?

Have you tried closing the Vectric program and re-opening it and see if the Post processor exists?

If you downloaded from here - http://www.cncrouterparts.com/support/s ... s/vectric/ - it's self installing file. Once it's downloaded you double click it and it will install the post processors in the PostP folder. You can then manually copy them to My_PostP if you want but copying the downloaded file won't do anything.

Vectric products read the PostP or My_PostP directories when starting up, at which time they validate (error check) each .pp file and build a list of "available" post processors.

If you add a new post with the Vectric product open, this list of "available" post processors is not updated.

You need to close and restart for the newly added post processor to be recognized.
