Post processor G-code sherline 2010
« on: July 07, 2013, 10:57:27 AM »
Dear forum,

I have recently purchased a 4 axix Sherline 2010 CNC mill. I am currently using Camwotks and need to develop a post machine for camworks to generate G-code. I have been advised Fanuc OM should work ok however i just want to check on the forum as well as understand a little more myself (if only for self help)

I want to make a psot for sherline using the UPG (universal post generator) from camworks but as g code newbie its a bit of a sharp learning curve. See attached files for reference....

any help or guidance would be appreciated...

Chances are that the Fanuc 0M will work unmodified.

Without engineers the world stops

Idepends on what control system yo have on the sherline. Mach3 or LinuxCNC ?

IF the Fanuc OM does not do it try the Fanuc 6 post

Just a thought, (;-) TP
