Unigraphics Post-Processors for CNC machines at Virginia Tech
In order to generate G & M codes for a CNC machine, you must first have a custom-built
post-processor for the particular CAM-software / CNC-machine combination you will be using.
The following describes how you can find and enable such post-processors for Unigraphics
and some of the CNC machines being used at Virginia Tech. It assumes that you have
installed Unigraphics in its standard location:
You should now be able to select the Virginia Tech post-processors from within the Unigraphics "manufacturing"
- If necessary, map to the "Projects" network drive in the VT CAD Laboratory
- Copy the folder Unigraphics_CNC/Post_Processors to your computer
- Unmap the "Projects" network drive if you had to map it in Step 1
- Follow the directions in the file README.txt
