August 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:






Sigma R19 – Duplication

Sigma R19 – Mirror

Sigma R19

Sigmax – Duplication

Sigmax – Mirror



















Compact 1000 Pro A Axis

2600 Pro F1-A Axis
































HCN 4000

HCN 10800

Variaxis i-800 NEO

















3. Improved Machines







Updated Tool position and Part position in the Denford 2600 machines.










Updated rotary axis names in all Mazak machine configuration files.









4. Documentation



Added bookmarks into the post processor training guide PDF file:
