✓ PostWorks has the ability to open up to 5 external files during postprocessing. This allows the user dynamically to extract information from external files to use for postprocessing or write data back to the external file during postprocessing.✓ Support for up to 10 axes.
✓ PostWorks has the ability to look ahead for a certain postprocessor command during postprocessing. This allows the user to dynamically modify the posted output if a certain postprocessor command is located somewhere later in the input file.✓ Supports mills, lathes, mill/turns, flame cutters, laser cutters, water jets, and more.
✓ PostWorks has the ability to configure one rotary axis for a 5-axis machine rotating around a 3D vector instead of rotates around a major axis or must lying on a major machine plane.✓ Easy to use interface.
✓ Has the option to linearize RAPID motion output if required.✓ Extensive on-line help.
✓ Has the option to reduce excessive jumpy rotary motion if the input tool axis is almost aligned with the Z-axis for machine with one rotary axis rotates around the Z-axis.✓ Automatic documentation for user created postprocessors.
✓ Reads MasterCam NCI file.✓ Extensive library of existing postprocessors.
✓ The rotary axes may rotate about any orientation, allowing for the simple definition of nutating axes.✓ User defined output blocks
✓ Special support for AC style rotaries to minimize unnecessary unwinding and large fluctuations of the C-axis.✓ Five-axis linearization.
✓ Support of transformation blocks, allowing drilling cycles and circular interpolation to be output at any rotary axis orientation.✓ Multiple circular interpolation formats.
✓ NURBS interpolation.✓ Helical interpolation.
✓ Accurate machine time calculations, takes into consideration the acceleration and deceleration of individual axes.✓ NURBS interpolation.
✓ Comprehensive Macro language allows the user to create their own postprocessor commands and to customize the output.✓ Automatically converts multiple linear moves to circular interpolation.
✓ to create external files separate from the MCD output, for example operator message files, tool lists, etc.✓ Feedrate support includes: feed per minute, feed per revolution, degrees per minute, and inverse time.
✓ Interactive editor allows conversion of one MCD format to another, the editing of clfiles, and the reverse post-processing of MCD files.✓ Complete CYCLE support and customization.
✓ Accurate machine time calculations.✓ Generates CYCLE motion for machines that do not support cycles. Multiple cutter compensation formats.
✓ Easily move programs from machine to machine.✓ Reads standard APT source files or binary CL files.
✓ Replaces existing mainframe-based or unsupported postprocessors.✓ Macro capability for advanced customization.
✓ Ability to read and incorporate external files into the postprocessor calculations and output.✓ One postprocessor solution for all your machines.
✓ Will support future machine tool purchases.✓ User defined MCD header and trailer sections.
