Need a post processor for KinetiC-NC

Hi All,

 

I have a CNC Step High Z S-1000T cnc and it uses a program called KinetiC-NC to control the cnc machine. I usually use a different program to make .nc programs for the controller but I wanted to start using Fusion 360 as it has more options for using a 4th axis and such. Is there a post processor for KinetiC-NC already or can someone from the fusion team create one for me? 

 

Thanks, Emmet

Umm....

How about providing us with some sample programs so we have something more to go on? Dump them in a .zip file and attach it to your next reply

Good. Fast. Cheap. Pick two.

Hi,

 

Attached are simple programs that are posted to KinetiC-NC

It seems rather straight forward, although there are a few things to note:

1) In your samples, none of them have more than one G code on a line at a time:

%
G21
G40
G49
G94
G97
G64
G90

Second, you also have no "H" call out. Does your machine not use height offset?

 

Lastly, all 3 samples are simple G1 moves, even for features that should have arc moves. Does your machine NOT support radius moves?

Hi,

 

I noticed that one of the samples I gave has arc's in the drawing...the post processor must not support arc's. (The program is till smooth and doesn't stop a million times while doing an arc). 

 

Also, I don't know what you mean by height offset? 

 

I hope this helps.

Hi Emmet, 

 

I am working with the same machine that you have, the CNC Step High Z S-1000T and i am  using the program KinetiC-NC. I would like to know if you found the right post processor for Kinetic NC. If so, I would be glad if you shared your information with me. 

Thank you

Hi Stephan,

Unfortunately, I haven't found a post yet but I also haven't tried the
solutions that were provided in other threads. I am asking the person who
sold me the machine if they can provide a post for Fusion as I have gotten
a program from them once.

If I can get a post, I will update this.

Thanks, Emmet

I also have this same issue.  Somewhere I read that the post processer for the kinetic NC is based on the Benezan BeamIcon2. I have not verified this but am looking at generating code with it and doing some comparison.

I found a post that works with my 720T model, but I am having issues with the Z-Axis offset.  Has anyone been successful with this yet?  Attached is the post that I found on this forum.  Apparently it comes from CNC Step in Germany.

Can't find what you're looking for? Ask the community or share your knowledge.
