Below please find an e-mail I recieved today from Scott Phillips. He is Bobcad's contact person for post issue. Pleas note at the bottom where he is asking me to pass along his contact info, to any person using Bobcad V22 for Mach. If you have any posting issue please feel free to contact him

I have made the following changes to the Mach Posts; for the:
Mach3 (v22 052908).exe
Mach3-Metric (v22 052908).exe
In all canned-cycles the G80 will output on separate line prior to the
rapid move Z retract.
An M01 (optional_stop) has been added after the return to home (G28 Z0.)
and before the toolchange.
In the Predator Header the DIAM_OFFSET has been added to correctly comp
tool in corresponding code.
Mach3-NoATC (v22 052908).exe
Mach3-NoATC-Metric (v22 052908).exe
Download the post and install. Please contact me via email with any
questions or post modifications. Also, I know that you are active on all
the CNC industry support forums. Feel free to direct anyone my way, who
may be having BobCAD post processor issues.

I took the latest Mach 3 no auto tool change post and did some editting. I call this my "Touch and Go" post. there are no height offset, G28 moves and only a few comment. I use this for my one tool operation.Set up is fast just touch top of part, set Z zero, back off, cycle start. At a tool change just reset Z zero and your good to go. Personal I don't always use tool leinght offset. If I'm running my Tormach on a production part. it is some times faster to change out part, than doing a tool change.
There are two post attached they both post the same G and M code. But the predator post is set up to output for solid verify in predator. so after I verify in peradotor, I just repost for machine (then you don't have all the comments if your in single block to click thru).

Any updated on BobCad v23 and Predator editor?   I can't seem to get anything from my Mach3 post to actually simulate in Predator.  Black screen of death.
