October 2023 Post Processor and Machine Simulation What's 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.

1. New Post Processors




Milling Post Processors







Kern Micro

Added Kern post processor









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.




Milling Post Processors








Fixed potentially missing spindle start commands in the grbl based post processors.

Felder F4 Integrate

The pecking cycles now contain the step distance, retract plane, and dwell time in the Felder F4 Integrate post processor.












Fixed potentially missing spindle start commands in the grbl based post processors.












Heidenhain, Heidenhain Inspection

Fixed SEQ output in the heidenhain post processors.













Added the 'Part origin' property that allows the part origin to be any of the 4 corners of the stock in the woodWOP post processor.








Mill-Turn Post Processors

Added more information to ToolpathID in the Result Generator Probing 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:















4. Improved Machines








Compact 1000 Pro

Compact 1000 Pro A Axis

5. Improved 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 360 data panel:

      Routine maintenance of some elements of the library to improve reliability.













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 4.6018.






API.pngPostprocessor updated to handle onParameter() calls with Point3D.









API.pngThe getPartAttachPoint() function respects the part position offsets.










API.pngSimulated wrapped engraving toolpath now matches posted toolpath.










API.pngAll the probe cycles are now properly simulated.










API.pngFixed some issues in polar machining mode.










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