417 abnormal end of job error when I try to post to Centroid Acorn SOLVED THX

The first center drill op (910) is working but none of the other NC's will work. The file size doesn't look right. I tried copy and paste to new document and no luck. Saving to computer instead of flash drive.

My guess is that you forgot to assign a Post Processor to your Machine.  If you look at the Machine (Autodesk robo), you will see that there is no Post Processor assigned.  If you edit one of your NC Programs, you will see the same thing.

This is a reply from Centroid:
"The problem is the program number.

"O9101" on line 2 of the program tells the Centroid control that the code which follows, until the next M99, are part of a subprogram that should be extracted and saved for later use (rather than being run immediately). Look up M98 and G65 in the operator's manual.

You should either use a program number that is not in the range 9100 - 9999; or you should name your file, e.g., "O9101.cnc", so that Centroid recognizes that it is already in place as a numbered program. Using a different program number will probably be simpler and more intuitive.

Note that you do not need to have a program number ("Onnnn" code) in your file at all. Centroid does not use program numbers for any purpose except to identify embedded subprograms."

I changed the number back to a smaller number (1001) and it worked and the PP was listed.
I had the PP setup in my machine profile but because the number was too large it didn't use the PP when posted is my guess yet it did post a NC.
There is code in this PP that is not needed. I was told years ago to use this PP when I was setting up this machine. Not sure why but it has worked. My son says he doesn't use all the "n" lines on each line and wished they weren't there. I would like to have just a line number instead if any..

 You will need to make quite a few edits to the post processor to achieve your desired output. I offer post processor development services and happy to work out a solution for your machine! Message me if I can be of assistance.   

If my post answers your question, please use Accept as Solution.

So, the only issue is that you had a program number that was reserved for special functions? Isn't the solution just to use a number below 8999?


@CNC_Lee I'm not seeing a "whole bunch of edits being needed", what am I missing?


If you don't want all the "N" numbers, just untick the box to make it so
