    hyperPOST

    RogerH

    It is not difficult to make custom post processors once you get the general flow of hyperPOST. There is an omf file that is loaded into HyperPost. That file contains all the details on how hyperPost formats and creates the post processor.

    You should make a copy of your current omf file and give it a unique name like the name of your machine tool. Then load that omf file into hyperPOST and start exploring around the various levels of its directory.

    You will see the following sections:
    description
    properties
    format specifications
    variables
    macros (requires hyperPOST Pro)
    components
    procedures (where you find the gcode commands)


    You make the change you desire and then tell hyperPOST to write a new oma file. The oma file is of course the post processor. I would give it the same name as the omf file.

    I have a few different post processors. One I use when I do not have my 4th axis attached and one when I do. I have a special one for use with the new way NC files are created in Hypermill 9.

    What kind of change do you want to make? I will guide you through it if I can.

    hyperPOST

    A statement from the company to clarify...

    hyperPOST has never been distributed for multi-axis applications.

    Many years ago (before my time), OPEN MIND USA distributed hyperPOST to certain users for 2D and 3D applications.

    The current company viewpoint is to provide postprocessors that are partly locked and partly configurable by a customer through pre-defined parameter switches. In this way, we can manage all posts of a certain type, and not have to manage and support each variation that has been created by a customer or for customer needs.

    The next major release of hyperMILL (v9.5) will give the users a "free text" concept to add text (saved in a separate file) at a number of key locations within NC files.

    Please do not confuse v9.5 with the next SP discussed separately on a different thread that will provide integration with Inventor 11.


    best regards
    Al

    That sounds super. I have needed this functionality for some time now. I have a 4th axis and I usually set up a job list for each rotation. With this new feature I can have the text file send the G00A180 commands. I was putting this information in by hand.

    Dave,

    I might be looking at more than can be done with the current hyperPOST. I know that I can have the company make changes but I find that I need little tweaks as I work things out and it would be convenient to do them myself.

    The changes that I want are listed below.

    Note that the lines with * are changed.

    Current start of program:
    G90 G80 G40
    M09
    *M05 //Replace all 5 blocks with M22
    *G91 G28 Z0.
    *G91 G28 Y0.
    *G91 G28 X0.
    *M00
    T11 M06
    M08
    S8000 M03
    *E1 G90 G0 X17.863 Y17.863 //change E1 to E5 and move Y to next line.

    Desired start of program:
    G90 G80 G40
    M09
    *M22
    T11 M06
    M08
    S8000 M03
    *E5 G90 G0 X17.863
    *Y17.863


    Current end of program:
    *M05 //Replace M05 & M09 as below.
    *M09
    M30


    Desired end of program:
    *E7 G0 Z0 M9
    *X0
    *Y0
    *E6
    *G0 G90 A0 C0
    *E10 H0 D0 Z0 M5
    *Y0 M23
    M30

    Thanks for your help.

    There is a way that users can change the desired output of each program.

    New features and options can be added to posts that will allow this funtionality.

    In the config file you have control over certain variables. In this case, we can add what's called "FreeNCText" lines into your post. These lines can be at the beginning and end of the program and also at the beginning and end of tool changes. This will allow you to change your desired output each time you post an NC file.

    As Al mentioned, more of this technology will be available in V9.5

    Please contact me and I will take care of this for you

    Best regards

    If you get the omf file for your post I will gladly help you with the changes to fix those "M" commands. The 5 axis stuff is something only Doug can do.
