G code for Pro-E manufacturing


New member
wasup yall

I have a question. I used the Proe E manufacturing module to set up machining, and got the G code in .tap file... Its missing a lot of commands such as coolant off/on, spindle off/on... G90 absoulute mode, M9, M5 etc.

This is my first time using the manufacturing module, and i tried my best to find how i can include these commands in the Gcode.. Can't find it anywhere.. Can someone help me on this please.

Uuuh, do you use G-post to code your program? One of the pre-installed posts, I suppose - which one? What's your machine?

I am using the HAAS VF2 turning center. What i understand is that i might have to modify the controller somehow, and i don't know how. Are you aware of anything like this?

If your not sure how to modify the g-post codes for processing it may be wise to request a post written specifically for your machine.. This can be pricey but we found that modifying the exsisting posts takes too long as it can require alot of tweaking.
