Fusion generates associated named view picture file when posting NC program

I created a template file for generating programs to run a family of parts on our Haas DS30s.

I have an associated view for each setup so relevant geometry appears automatically for whoever is programming.  I noticed that when I post the NC program now it generates a .png picture file of each of these views.

I checked my post configuration to verify the M130 part/tool images boxes were not checked, not sure where else to look. 


I don't need these pictures and would prefer they not be generated in the first place...


I also tweaked each view a few times, so there is multiple views with the same name in the list of named views, is there a way to remove them from the list?

Hello, @Eric_Evans_a_GiroDisc_com .


I suspect, there is no good solution for you. Basically, it is a limitation of interaction between Fusion and post. Fusion always generates images, if it sees `keywords = "MODEL_IMAGE PREVIEW_IMAGE";` in the post. And it is a post's responsibility to remove these images, if they are not needed. At least, I see this in "haas next generation.cps" post.

BTW, what post you are using and what operation system do you have (Windows or Mac)?
Thank you!

I am using the Haas post for a DS30 with CHC, running Windows 10Pro x64

I tried commenting out every instance I could find of "IMAGE" in the post, it still generates these screenshots.

I never had any setup sheets associated with this file, seems weird it would puke out a bunch of screenshots the I didn't ask for...
