Thank you again.
I've built it from scratch, every single part. It is being a great adventure. Everything modeled in Solidworks.
I'll post the XML tomorrow after I get back to my working place.
There are some brains, like the ones for the aqua screen and for the MPG Pendant.
I'm using the smooth stepper too, but I don't think its plugin is causing this.
You said about the G50 to cancel the scaling and I tried editing the Gcode, but as soon as the program jumped to the line below the scale on the X axis turn on again, on an eye blink.
I'll load a XML from the last week and see what happens.

Best regards

Don't know what was causing the scaling, even if I commanded a G50. I updated the postprocessor, so the max feed and rapids doesn't cross my machine limits.
Mach3 is working OK now.
Thank you for your help Overloaded.

Now, I'm fighting against another problem. My router doesn't accept feedrate updates during gcode running. Neither feedrate overwrite.
Some times, in the gcode, there are some Fx... commands,like ones on toolpath linkage, and my machine servos jerks when these commands lines runs.
As if they were jammed or something, giving just small "punches" instead of the right movement.
Any clue how to solve this issue?

Hello using SC 2010 to Mach 3 on taig mill and keep getting the z going down to like 200mm? I tried all 3 Posts on this thread and the Fanuc as well. I checked the drawing and don't see any OD points etc..?

I think your best bet would be to contact your salesman where you bought the program as that is part of their job to set you up with a proper post processor for Mach 3.

A guy im going to school with is going to sell me his complete laptop with the software on it.  It is nice but for the price he wants if i cant find a PP that will work I will just  look at bobcad. For what I do I dont need anything crazy. It is nice though. His shop switched to Mastercam.

Is there a solution for these messages?

I use SW2010 and Solidcam 2011. The postprocessor is from cncbasher above.
It is not possible to generate a G-code so the SC is in fact useless for me.

thanks.

Thanks Dave for the post processor. I am using Solidworks 2011 and Solidcam 2010 to Mach 3 to my new Taig mill. I am having trouble with the most recent version of this post processor. I am working in imperial units.

 I am getting error codes as follows:

"Line 430: invalid GENERATE statement"
"Line 430: unrecognized statement"


I'm also getting the same error, did anyone ever get a post processor working for solidcam,??

Hi - I had the problem also - there is a small typo in the mach3.gpp file. You can simply open the file with a text editor and go to line 430.

This line has an extra hyphen at the end:

{'T'tool_number,' M' mcode,' D'tool_number,' H'tool_number'}

just delete that so you have:

{'T'tool_number,' M' mcode,' D'tool_number,' H'tool_number}

and your problem should be solved.

I have also attached the revised imperial version of the post here.

if you need metric post - just follow the instructions above.
