post processors


New member
Does anybody knows were can i find post processors from GPOST to work with Fanuc 0M(wedm) and Heidenheim TNC 355 (machining) that really work. I already tried GPOST an PTC sites but they got some problems.
I have the same problem with Mitsu Wire EDM posts. I have yet to resolve it. Even Tech support isn't much help. I guess that's why we keep using Mastercam.
epalfer & rcamp -

what is the nature of the psot processor issues? Can you be a little more specific? I think the posts on PTC's GPOST central page might be useful as a starting point, but may not fit for any one specific use. They would need to customization for an individual application.
CAD file type ?

I have a 2D Cad file with a extension .mod

Can anyone tale me what Cad plateform works with .mod files?

Thank you for your help.

well, post processor problem again. over 50% of all the posts some how related to post processor. ptc always wants to satisfy their customers. guess what they are not because they have tu run around look for a post to run the machine. aren't ptc suppose to provide solution now aday? not just a cam system with no post. isn't that half of what the customer need?
