[Bug] [Feature Request] Machine Object missing from documentation and request for Machine.postProcessor property

The Machine object is missing from the API documentation yet it can be found in cam.py.

 

The methods and properties of Machine are fairly self explanatory but there is one potentially very useful property missing, getting the post-processor associated with the machine as seen here in the configuration dialogue:

The use case for this property comes when post-processing using the API using the PostProcessInput.create() method. the create() method requires passing the full file path of the postprocessor .cps file. However this is often already defined in the machine configuration above. Current options are either hard-coding the post-processor file path or creating more UI to collect the file path from the user for something that is likely already defined for the machine.
