3-Axis Mill Tutorial

In this tutorial, we will be building a post-processor for a 3-axis machining center with a FANUC Oi-MD control. This tutorial is NOT a substitute for proper training with CAM-POST. Users should have completed CAM-POST basic training before using this tutorial.

Before we begin, we want to verify the basic ICAM units setting. This setting will determine the units setting for all the predefined post-processor templates included with CAM-POST. Launch the ICAM Configuration Utility by clicking on the ‘Config V23’ shortcut .

Once you have verified that the default units system has been set to MM, simply click OK to close the configuration utility.

Now we are ready to launch the CAM-POST Questionnaire program by clicking on the ‘Quest V23’ shortcut .
