Using numerous post examples, Colin walks students through manipulating the basic building blocks of a post. You’ll be surprised how easy it is to change the post file to accommodate different preferences in your NC file output, whether you want to put a tool table in the beginning or simply change the way any circular interpolation is output.
He also covers the relationship between the NCI file and the post processor, changes you can make to the Machine and Control Definitions within Mastercam, the basics of Numeric and String Variables, and the difference between Postblocks and Postlines.
Other topics and discussions include Drill Cycles, Formatting Numeric Variables, Modality and String Selectors, and Boolean Logic. Throughout the course, Colin references the MP Documentation Portfolio to help students understand how to use this powerful set of documents.
