July 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.

3. 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:







2600 Pro F1

Compact 1000 Pro

BPF 2131


















































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




4. Improved Machines

5. Documentation


Added the Techman Robot User Guide:

6. 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.


This button is on the Tool Library Home Page and describes the most recent version of the Tooling Schema file:

This details the configuration of the JSON file needed to create an importable tooling database into Fusion.






7. New Workholding



Workholding Library



The Workholding library lets you add a workholding equipment (vise, table, tombstone, etc.) to a manufacturing model. Those can be found in the "CAM Samples" project folder that you can find in the Fusion 360 data panel:

5th AXIS:

-               3 vices:  D221M, D1151S, V562









8. 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 4.5971.







The tool tip position is now calculated when moving to the rotary axis limit during a rewind/retract operation when TCP is in effect.





You can find here all the information regarding the Autodesk CAM Post Processor engine.
