Run Post Processor from .TAP files to CNC files

Post by Buckmaster1967 » Mon Mar 29, 2021 7:12 pm

Hello,
Sheetcam updated to 7.1.8. Now when I use Run Post Processor the file is saved as .CNC file, instead of .TAP file. My Masso unit does not see .CNC files. Was working fine before update. Help please.

I also updated to 7.1.8 but still export .TAP files. Is it possible you changed something else at the same time?

Check in SheetCam under Options, Machine, Post Processor to see if your settings were reset on update

What post processor are you using? It could be that your post processor was updated at the same time. Some posts set the file extansion to a fixed value.

Thanks guys. It was my Post Processor. When I updated, it changed processors.

If you give info on your table/electronics a suggestion can be made as to the post processor you should use. Les has supplied many post processors with SheetCam because there are many differences in table designs and options that tables can have.
DIY 4X4 Plasma/Router Table
Hypertherm PM65 Machine Torch
Drag Knife and Scribe
Miller Mig welder
13" metal lathe
Small Mill
Everlast PowerTig 255 EXT
