    how do I set my post processors

    every time I start bobcad, I have to re-set my post processor to mach 3. Is there a way to change the default post processors for the mill and lathe?

    thanks,

    Alan

    Look for a program in the BC directory called MEdit. This allows you to edit the machine file and customize it to your liking. Getting rid of the MORI machines if you don't have them is nice. Create a new profile for your machine using the mach3 post and put it at the top of the list. Then it will always be the default.

    No need to go editing your .xml file, simply go to "Cam Defaults > Current Settings > Select Posting > Select your Post in the Library > Select "Machine Parameters" and click the "Save as Default" button, now click the "OK" button, close BC and then when you re-open it your default PP will be the one you selected

    Thanks that works also
    I hadn't tried it since it was listed as "Current Settings" thinking that was for the current session not for date forward default.
