    Post Processor Issues

    Can anyone explain why the post processor would process code like what has been highlighted, and how to correct it? The machine reads the highlighted lines and alarms out because of the "X-.", If I manually edit the program, and remove the "X-.", the machine will read the line without an alarm..
    The post processor i'm using is for Fanuc 16M

    Thanks,
    Andy

    The machine control is balking because you don't have a value for X. "X-." is an invalid instruction without a number after the point. Are you sure it's the post that's doing that? Have you tried another post, to see if it does the same thing?

    It actually posts out the same no matter what post I use, what I have actually figured out, is that it's posting out "X-." when it should be posting out "X0." and yes, I understand exactly why the control sets an alarm for the"X-." because that command gives no direction, what I don't understand is why "X-." is being posted out rather "X0." like it should be...

    This sounds like an issue for Mecsoft tech support. Send them the file that's provoking this error and let them figure out what's happening. If it's not particular to one post, it might be a bug.
