What post processor for BobCAD CAM V31 and Mach4?
« on: February 27, 2020, 08:44:21 PM »
I do not see a post processor listed for Mach4, only Mach3.
Anyone know what post processor I should be using for Mach4 (mill)?

Hi,
the Mach3 and Mach4 Gcode dialects are almost identical therefore you can use a Mach3 post.

Hmm. I read there are some differences...

I just want to make sure I get started with the right stuff and do not limit Mach 4 by using Mach 3 posts.

Generic Fanuc will do.  If you want to get picky, Fanuc 21i  We made it Fanuc compatible so people didn't have to worry about a special post processor.
