Mazak CO2 Laser Post Processor & Waterjet Post Processor

Post by dick_laser »

Just found VCarve Pro and was so impressed I bought it. I thought I would just use it for nesting, leadin, leadout, tabbing and then export a DXF to my other CADCAM program. After looking a little further I want to try to post code from VCarve to our machines. The waterjet has a wierd incremental code and the laser is G-Code and has a few specific things in it that I would like customized. Where do I start? Are there good post processors already I can start with. These are 2D only machines with NO Z Axis coding.

The waterjet motion system is driven by Indexer LPT from Ability Systems but we will switch to Mach3 in the future. Are there any Indexer Post Processors for VCarve?

If you look on the Help menu in VCarve you'll find a guide to editing a Post Processor which hopefully will give you all the information you need.
