Almost every CAM provider is capable of generating acceptable tool paths that look good in simulation. But what is the quality of the actual G Code? You should never have to settle for posts that force you to manually edit code.
Our goal is for you to be able to generate 100% edit-free G Code. To reach this goal, ShopWare has a dedicated full-time post writer on our staff. Our competitors hate talking about posts, while for us, it’s our strength.
If you are a Mastercam Maintenance Subscriber, we generally supply 99% of our posts from our extensive library free of charge, as-is. If you need minor tweaks done to the posts to bring them into your standards, let us know. Complex posts, such as 5 Axis Mill or Multi Tasking Lathe posts are generally available for a fee. Please talk to your ShopWare Account Executive for information.
Post Processor Policy
As part of your current Mastercam Maintenance contract, ShopWare will include, at no charge, any standard 3 axis posts from ShopWare’s post library. These posts have been proven and will provide you worry free G-code programs. Many times, programmers prefer to see their programs follow a specific standards-based format. If you require these posts to be edited beyond their original scope, ShopWare will be pleased to quote this work. These custom posts are guaranteed to provide G-code output to your specifications.
Due to the complexity and wide variety of machines and controls we ask that you complete the relevant areas of the following forms when requesting a post processor for a given machine. Completion of the relevant forms will allow us to keep the turn around time of your request to a minimum. Often times, post assistance is delayed due to a lack of information and/or specifications needed to complete the process. Other times we are overwhelmed with extraneous data which takes large amounts of time to sort through only to find that the information really needed was not supplied.
Custom work on Posts will not be started until all relevant information is supplied.
