AlphaCAM, Mach3 milling post processors
« on: July 03, 2007, 04:45:41 AM »
Here are the 2 posts I use with AlphaCAM.

One is metric and one is inches, they are 3 axis only.

Unpack them from the Zip file and drop them into the C:\LICOMDAT\MPOSTS.ALP directory

I would think the mill post would do the job, have you tried it?

I did. I placed it in the MPOSTS.ALP directory and tried the RPOSTS.ALP (where my other posts are) and neither place would allow me to select it as a post when I was outputting my program. Is there some kind of install to do?

Attach me a router post that is on your system now, any will do, a Fanuc 6 or 11 is the best type.
