Mach 3 lathe post for Bob-Cad v22
« on: January 25, 2008, 04:48:14 PM »
Is there anybody out there in the whole world using a post processor in Bob_Cad lathe v22???? I have downloaded the mach 3 lathe post from Bobcad but it doesn't generate useable g code. I thought I would ask here if anybody out there is running this software and if they have either had a post written or come across one that works. The only cutting I have done in mach 3 is using the wizards, they work, I just wish I could use my drawings in Bob- Cad to generate some usable code. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!! :o :'(

 ;D Can't thank you enough Chip. I was starting to wonder if mabey all this CNC stuff was beyond my comprehending it. You have been a great source of help and My goto enforcer( junk yard dog) with Bob-cad tech support. I'm glad your on that task cause they just brush me off as a newby dummy. Ha Ha. Looking forward to getting after it again monday. I'll post some pics of the parts I'm now sucessfully making.
