Heidenhain TNC355 post processor from MasterCam

Am trying to run a Heidenhain TNC 355 controlled milling machine from MasterCam but need a post processor.

i.e. Someone will do the post processing from my CAD drawings but only if I can find the right post processor.

Only generic ones supposedly available, which need significant modification, blood sweat & tears not to mention a few ****'s

to get these things to talk.

Does anyone have one already written? Please.

2006-04-04_195245_Arcs.zip this is a fully working post, for mcam, to run TNC355 in conversational, arcs in xy, xz and yz etc. Drilling cycles need datum set to top of work, z=0 , it will work if z isn't zero but i can't remember how. Output: set up above work is -ve and cut depth below work is also -ve, all values must be either +ve or -ve otherwise you get an error. I've used it for a couple of years with no problem, does surfaces etc etc, trying to get it to do helical interpolation for threads, so if you know anyone, please send them my way. Many Thanks. Lawrence.

Can you also let me have a copy, I'm looking for a post edit to do helixes for thread cutting, also to edit the post so I can use a 4th axis just for positioning. I have a great post for Mastercam to Heidenhain conversational if anyone needs it let me know.
