Autodesk PostProcessor for RRF



  • Hi, I've made an Autodesk postprocessor (powermill, featurecam, artcam) that works with RRF. It's still a work in progress but so far it works.
    The only thing I was not able to remove is the G43H1 at the beginning, I'm not sure if it's post related or cam related...
    Canned cycles are dissable.
    Arcs works.

    I don't have a Duet controlled CNC yet, i'm putting my printer in CNC mode, so if someone can try it, let me know how it works.

    Change .txt extension to .pmoptz

  • G43H1 is calling up a tool height offset using the H1 variable. Maybe the Duet will ignore it?

    The Duet will generate an error message, but otherwise ignore it.



  • @timcurtis67 Hi, I'm manually removing the G43H1, I never paid much attention to it since I use it all the time on the machine center and when I occasioanlly don't need it, I edit the file. But now that I actually want to eliminate it I don't know how...

    If you aren't using tool changes in your programs you may be able to eliminate the call function in the post file. I have done it with Mastercam posts but haven't looked into the Autodesk post Porcessor. I will look into it today.

    Do you have the ability to post with a no tool option?



  • @timcurtis67 Hi, I was reading the help and apparently you can't dissable tool changes in powermill, it will allways write them with the first trajectory of a NC program. But I'm sure there must be a way to dissable them in the post, it's just my knowledge is limited, I simply edit a fanuc post and dissable eveithing I found that RRF won't interpret. You can write scripts, but I know nothing of programming.

    I don't have the ability to post without a tool in powermill, but I don't know if you can in featurecam or in artcam.
