If you contact BobCad they can supply you with their Mach3 post-processor and they will also be able to answer any other questions you may have.

I appreciate that this is not directly answering your post but I think it is better if you get the information you require direct from the horse's mouth (so to speak).

Tweakie,  With BobCad you are talking about the wrong end of the horse.

Wrong end of the horse - I like that.  :D

BobCadCam are such a pita with their persistent sales badgering I feel they should be made to take some responsibility with their after-sales back-up and not keep passing it on to others to sort out.

If I never hear their name again I would be absolutely delighted, split open a six pack and may even start smoking again.  ;D

There's a pretty helpful bunch of BobCAD users at CNC Zone.
As long as you don't complain about BobCAD.

It's kinda sad how they are always trying to justify BobCAD's shortcomings.
If it crashes, it's because you're not doing things the "right" way.
Sure, it's incredibly cumbersome to use, BUT, it gives you more for your money, lol.

Amazes me that after more than 20 years of people complaining about their high pressure sales tactics that they still do it! Slow learners I am guessing.
