    FastCAM with my HyCut machine, witch post processor?

    Hello guys!

    I have a HyCut CNC plasma machine that I have used a little while with the FastCAM software. Since I`m not satisfied with FastCAM, I want to try SheetCAM. Looks better and more professional.

    Portable

    But I have two questions. Witch post processor shall I choose in SheetCAM? There are several things that I don`t need in the g-code because the THC system is a external system. Here I have a example g-code from my FastCAM software, what do you thing guys? Witch post processor?

    I would go to the SheetCAM website and ask Les (the maker) of SheetCAM what he'd recommend.

    No big deal, he's happy to help.

    I'd try the Mach 3 posts, there are a couple of different ones... or even the dynatorch neither one has THC...

    When you select the "post" sheetcam will give you a description just below the post in a little window....


    I just noticed the date on the post..... I"m only about 6 months too late...
