PPC file
« on: January 20, 2011, 12:43:23 AM »
Hi, I have an old Wolverine mill and I have located an old file with *.PPC extension. I have a feeling it has all of the machines setup information. Does anyone know what program will open it?
Thanks so much.
Dwight

I found a way to open it. so now, there is a lot of information looks like code. perhaps mach3 could use this information if I can get it into it. Suggestions?

Here is part of what is there.

MACHINE_NAME=AlignRite2MM
TIME_FACTOR=0.5
OUTPUT_DIRECTORY=C:\
OUTPUT_EXTENSION=*.CNC
EDIT=Y
DEFXYFEED=20
DEFZFEED=10
DEFSPEED=22500
DEFRETRACT=0.2
DEFXACCURACY=0.0005
DEFYACCURACY=0.0005
DEFZACCURACY=0.0005

That looks like a post processor that would be used for making code suitable for your machine  in a CAM programme.
