CAM and CNC Post Processors

Convert toolpaths into machine-specific G-code

CAM and CNC Post Processor SERVICES AVAILABLE

Our technical experts can develop custom CAMWorks and SOLIDWORKS CAM post processors tailored to your company's specific needs. We draw from our extensive collection of customer-validated post processors as an initial starting point and customize the post processor based on your particular requirements. The expected delivery time is 7 to 10 business days unless otherwise noted. After development, this post processor will streamline your CNC workflow for years to come.

 

 

 

 

Post processors are a critical part of any CAM system

The role of the post-processor is critical – it acts as the translator between the CAM program's generic language and the language specific to your CNC machine's controller to convert toolpaths into machine-specific g-code.

The output of CAMWorks and SOLIDWORKS CAM is a g-code file. This file contains the instruction set for your parts program: the feeds, speeds, toolpath, tool changes, safety codes, and more.

Because the post processor is a translator, its g-code output is flexible. It is crucial the g-code matches your CNC machine parameters and takes advantage of the machine's full capabilities. We can also account for the preferences of CNC operators. Ultimately an excellent post processor means less hand-editing, more efficient programs, and faster setup and cycle times.

Both CAMWorks and SOLIDWORKS CAM install with a variety of basic post processors. Users can also create their post processors with the Universal Post Generator. However, most users find the best option is to rely on GoEngineer's expertise and experience to make a post processor specific to their needs and CNC equipment.

With a custom post processor, you have control over the g-code output without the burden of learning to create post processors yourself. GoEngineer's experts can customize safety lines, tool changes, canned cycles, and m-codes within your post processor. We can even expand the capabilities of CAMWorks or SOLIDWORKS CAM with the post!

Our goal is to build a post processor that requires zero hand-editing and is tailored to your exact operator and machine requirements. We also commit to maintaining and supporting that post processor if your requirements change.

We have hands-on experience with most CNC machine tool vendors and control systems – in fact, we have written thousands of custom post processors over the years for our satisfied customers. There is no better way to squeeze the most power from CAMWorks or SOLIDWORKS CAM than with a custom post processor from GoEngineer.
