March 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.

New Beta Post Processors

 

 

The following are the new post processors under development, which means they are currently in the testing phase:

 

 

 

 

If you choose to use one of these post processors, you assume all inherent risk in using it, and we ask that you proceed with caution. That being said, if you feel safe doing so and are willing to test any of them and provide feedback, let us know in the HSM Post Processor Ideas, where Beta post processors are announced, or in the HSM Post Processor Forum.

 

 

 

 

 

2. Improved Post Processors

 

 

We are always working to keep post processors up to date with new technologies. This is a summary of the main improvements made to post processors already in the library.

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:

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

 

 

 

 

4. Improved Tool Library

 

 

 

 

Haas Tooling.png

 

Updated Haas Tooling library

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 4.5930.

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

When will we see Machine Simulation setup for Mill/Turn machines? Any plans for that?
