April 2023 Post Processor and Machine Simulation What' New

Post Processor and Machine Simulation What’s New

 

Home Page Ok 2022.JPG

 

Looking for the latest post processors and machines updates? Look no further!

We are continually working hard to bring you updates and improvements to the many open-source Post Processors and Machines we offer for free, but those updates often get lost in the shuffle of other enhancements or big feature releases. This post aims to update you on newly added or improved post processors and machines, so you can stay up to date on what you use today or look for news so you can get the most out of Fusion 360.

 

This post will get refreshed with notable updates as they’re released, and you can click each hyperlink to go to the mentioned post. As always, you can find the latest in our post processor offering on the Online Post Library where you can search by vendor, type, or name, and see any recent changes to each post processor.

2. New Machines

 

Machine Library

 

 

 

The Machine Library lets you manage your machine tools by using Machine Configurations to define your available machines and resources. These configurations can automate the settings in your Job Setup.
There are many Machine Configurations available in the standard library.

 

You will have available configuration files for some of the leading machine manufacturers:

 

 

 

MachineNew.jpg

 

The easiest way to get started, is to copy an existing configuration that matches some of the characteristics of your machine.

 

 

 

 

 

3. Improved Machines

 

 

 

 

 

 

haas gm-2_thumbnail.png

4. Tools and Tool Holders

 

 

 

The Tool Library lets you manage tools for Milling, Turning, Cutting (waterjet, laser & plasma), Touch Probes and Holders. The Tool Library lets you manage libraries of predefined tools and project documents.

Blum Touch Probe

Blum-Novotest a global leader in technology and innovation in measuring and testing technology. A reliable partner to the global machine tool, automotive and aerospace industries.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Post Processor Engine

 

 

Our development team is always working to update and fix the Autodesk CAM Post Processor engine. These modifications are not related to a specific postprocessor (as described above) but affect the entire library or at least the post processors using that specific class. The current post processor kernel is 4.5946.

 

 

 

 

API.pngExtra lines are no longer added to the output NC file when setWriteInvocations is enabled.

 

 

 

 

 

 

API.pngUse an even degree increment when calculating rotations that will keep the machine within the limits of the linear axes in the section.getABCByPreference function.

 

 

 

 

 

API.pngOptimize polar interpolation when crossing the center of the rotary axis.

 

 

 

 

 

 

API.pngProcessing process works fine when a post processor has a property defined with a scope setting of "operation" and a cascading post is used.

 

 

 

 

 

 

API.pngThe rotary axes will no longer go outside of their defined limits when the toolpath is linearized around the singularity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

API.pngUpdate post engine to include new strategy 'inspectSurfaceGeometry'
