    Re: ERROR User variable not declared MOVE_NEEDED

    Variable MOVE_NEEDED inside postprocessor code is not declared.
    Alphacam post and VBA macros, Autodesk HSM post.

    Re: ERROR User variable not declared MOVE_NEEDED

    Open the Post in AlphaEdit for editing then search for $1000 section of the Post then make a new line under the $1000 line with the following code

    MOVE_NEEDED (6,0,0)

    then save post and then re-select the Post in AlphaCam Mill or Router which ever you are using.
    The (6,0,0) is for Integer Format with no leading or trailing zero's, I'm assuming by the name of the variable that it's just an On or Off variable either 1 or 0,
    if it needs another format use ( ) for numbers similar to XY and Z Axes Format or (" ") for Text Format.
