2D turning post processor for powermill 2017

Hi is there a 2D turning post processor for powermill 2017? We have a Mazak 3 axis Lathe that uses the C-AXIS. Can you use the new turn feature to generate say a simple Hex on the front of a job using the C, X, Z axis. Thanks

In Powermill use this macro:

FUNCTION MAIN() {
   DIALOGS MESSAGE OFF
   ENTITY TP=entity('toolpath','')
   IF error($TP) {
      DIALOGS MESSAGE ON
      RETURN
   }
   IF $TP.Strategy != 'turn_roughing' {
      DIALOGS MESSAGE ON
      RETURN
   }
   IF NOT member($TP.UserParameters._keys,"RoughXThickness" ) {
      EDIT USERPAR toolpath  $TP.Name NAME 'RoughXThickness'
      EDIT USERPAR toolpath  $TP.Name TYPE 'Real'
      CREATE USERPAR toolpath $TP.Name
   }
   $TP.Userparameters.RoughXThickness=$TP.Turning.RoughXThickness

   IF NOT member($TP.UserParameters._keys,"RoughZThickness" ) {
      EDIT USERPAR toolpath  $TP.Name NAME 'RoughZThickness'
      EDIT USERPAR toolpath  $TP.Name TYPE 'Real'
      CREATE USERPAR toolpath $TP.Name
   }
   $TP.Userparameters.RoughZThickness=$TP.Turning.RoughZThickness
   DIALOGS MESSAGE ON
}

In Postprocessor create two userdefined parameter: udp_RoughZThickness and udp_RoughZThickness.
