March 2024 Post Processor and Machine Simulation What's New

Post Processor and Machine Simulation What’s New

 

Home 2024.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.

 

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.

1. 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.

 

 

 

 

Generic Post Processors

Heidenhain Inspection

-Added mandatory quotes to string declaration in the Heidenhain Inspection post processor.

-Solved issue when using property 'singleResultsFile' in the Heidenhain Inspection post processors.

-Property 'resultsFileLocation' now sets the correct file location in the Heidenhain Inspection post processors.

-Fixed output syntax of variable Q330 in probing cycles when property 'toolAsName' is enabled but the tool description is empty.

Updated the Haas mill-turn post processors to the latest version.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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:

Photon Ultra

Photon X

Photon Zero

Photon Mono SE

Photon Mono SQ

Photon Mono X

DNM 4000

DVF 5000

DVF 8000

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NP Power.png

Malachite

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. New Workholdings

 

 

 

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 data panel:

2 Pallets

7 Pins & Jacks

6 Vice Files

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Improved Workholdings

Updated 26 Lang Vices.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mate_Tech_Stacked.1683310350231.png

 

Updated 52 Mate Vices.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. 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 4.6050.1, soon to be 4.6084.

 

 

 

 

 

API.pngAdded the onFeedMode function which is called whenever the feedrate mode changes during an operation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

API.pngAdded the activeFeedMode variable and corresponding getActiveFeedMode function which contain/return the active feedrate mode.

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. Post Processor Ideas

 

 

 

To make our library more varied and complete, we are always working on new post processors. Some of them still need more testing before being released in the public library. Every new Beta post processor is announced in the Idea Station, you can find all of them in the Post Processor Idea Station.

Please note that 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, we are looking forward to get your feedback!
