Answer to "How to get/make a postprocessor for ArtCAM."We have had a BoXZY User use Artcam with the CNC Shark Pro (inch) output type. He has been able to use it even when working in mm and has achieved very nice results on wood. He cautions that the output file will not adjust feed rates so you have to go with smaller slices. He uses .3mm for a 3mm roughing bit instead of the suggested 2mm. It comes out as a .tap file so you have to change to "all files" when loading it. Whenever using an inch file be sure to add a G21 code (exactly as typed just "G21" by itself on it's own line) at the very end of the gcode to return the machine to mm mode or your manual movements will get extremely long (inches vs mm). Hope this helps!
