Hi Chris,

We have a postprocessor that's been written for a Morbidelli running with the Xilog Plus (metric) controller.

I've e-mailed the postp directly to you along with a note on how to test the output using the Trial version of VCPro.

Please let us know if it works or needs modifying.

Hallo Tony

Thanks for your reply

Have recieved the file and copied it into the folder. It does show in the dropdown list of the toolpaths. If i save the toolpaths as a .pgm and try to open the toolpath file .pgm in xylog plus it gives me an error [13,4] EDITdb:(........vcarve2.pg_) file not found.

Not sure how to fix this.

I would really like to see if this program would be able to work on my machine.
Im really interested in purchasing your program.

Thanks

Chris

Hi Chris,

The filename information (vcarve2.pg_) is not included inside the toolpath file created by the
postprocessor so I guess the error message is related to the toolpath filename and a database?

The SCM Xilog Plus control usually requires an .XXL file extension and I wonder if your setup could use this option?

Hi there thanks for your reply . Still a struggle to find .XXL extension .As all our programs exported from Xilog Plus to Panel Mac with a program called " Paddle " have an extension .pgm The CNC actully operates on the Panel Mac software . Hope to solve this bug soon Thanks Chris.
