Understanding Post-Processors

When utilising Autodesk’s Advanced Manufacturing applications, you will need to use a post-processor to digest your Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) operations to a Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machine. 

To do this, you must have Numerical Control (NC) Code, formatted in a specific way depending on your machine and its controller, these are some of the most popular machine controllers: Fanuc, Siemens, Heidenhain, Haas, Mitsubishi and Fagor.  

Autodesk’s CAM applications allow you to choose your desired post-processor depending on the machine manufacturer and controller. These applications come with some generic post processors, here is some information that will help you locate the default libraries available to you now:
