You don't need a special post processor to use the 2010 Screenset. Regardless of which screenset you use, Mach3 still runs the code exactly the same way.

The only thing my custom posts really do is remove the first tool change, to avoid zeroing the first tool twice.

The standard Fusion 360 post, though, has a lot of stuff in it that I personally wouldn't want. But code that it creates will run the same in Mach3 regardless of which screenset you're using.

What about the tool change settings, will they still be the same then.
If Fusion 360 issues an M6 command, for a tool change, I guess it will work as it would for the 2010 screenset as well.

Yes, as long as there's an M6 in your code, it'll work fine.

Hi, I installed the mach3 screenset but when I click on my mach3 profile to use it, the same old mach3 screen pops up and not the mach3 2010 version, please advise, thanks.

Did you go to View > Load Screens, and select one of the 2010 screenset files?
Please read through the manual, as there's a lot of information on setting up the screenset in the manual.

I don't have a limiting switch for my z axis. The manual says to edit a script file to make the autozero toolchange work, do you have anymore info on that, thanks.

If you don't have a Z axis home switch, just jog to the top of the travel and "REF" the Z axis there. Do this when you first start mach3.
If you use the Ref All button to home your X and Y, just make sure the Z axis is all the way up before you do.
You don't have to edit any macros.
