    Edgecam generating new post help

    Hi
    I’m trying to make a post using the code wizard edgecam 2020. I’ve went through all that’s required but I can’t load it into the available posts I once in the edgecam program. I think I may have to generate a couple of other files as the posts that can be loaded have 3 files the same and I don’t know how to do this! Any words of wisdom appreciated. Thanks

    you have to press the "compile" button for wizard to put the generator in the list, have you done that?
    it looks like a sheet of paper with a gear in front of it.
    i think "ctrl+I" shortcut will also activate compiling

    Hi Tim
    Thanks a lot that’s worked, something so simple!! Feel kinda stupid.

    I did the hardest bit then went looking to generate the code without full filling the code generator process, think I was just a bit too keen!

    Thanks again now I’ll have ago at making up a post for conversational Heidenhain. Hopefully it’s as straight forward as the Fanuc.
