Editing .tap file prior to generation

Editing .tap file prior to generation

I'm trying to match the outputted .tap file from saving the CL file out an engraving process match the output gcode from Gibbs CAM. The main differences are in the start and end code. For example, the code needs to use G54, G55, or G56 offset and needs to display the program number in the start code. Is there a way to configure this in Creo NC so that it will output the correctly formatted file? Is it possibly in the config file or the engraving feature itself?

What you're looking for is an appropriate post-processor. Here's a discussion of the very same topic that came up in the past. There are probably other discussions along the same lines if you look for them.

Finding these discussions is often a case of knowing the weird words that people use to talk about it. In this case "postprocessor".
