Rotary post processor

Post by Tlempicke »

I will be using Aspire to generate tool paths for my Centroid based machine. I see that there is no post P for a rotary tool path. Is this available somewhere?

There is a downloadable modified post processor that uses inverse time feed. You may have to modify it to support your rotary axis. I use C as my rotary not A or B.

I have an inverse time feed postp that was developed a year ago and tested on Centroid software. I am in N Georgia doing a 2 day training and will mail it to you when I get home this weekend.
