Mitsubishi A500

We just acquired an older cnc machine which is an intertech 41-470 with a Mitsubishi a500 controller. The gang turret is an X,Y,Z where in the Y moves the tools up and down. I see that fusion has a post processor for Mitsubishi but the output is a bit different just outputs x and z. 

 

Is there anyway to get a post processor for this type of machine or will the post just work?

It's doubtful that the post will "just work", as it's a post for a 2 axis lathe. Do you have any sample code that may have come with the machine? It's likely that a Fanuc could do the job, but it's likely going to need some edits

yeah so a couple things I found out were that it doesn't like I J K method for radius's so I enabled use radius arc and have to put in the Y so that the tool changer can bring everything back home. Also it doesnt use say t0101, just uses t1. 

Heres a snip bit of code
