Hi I've recently purchased a small Roland MDX-20 desktop milling machine. I'm trying to link this up to Pro/NC so i can apply toolpaths within Pro/NC then output to the MDX-20 Has anyone done this? and if so how? I'm of the beleif that i need to create a post to output to type RML-1. RML-1 can then be read into the MDX for machining Thanks in advance Ben This thread is inactive and closed by the PTC Community Management Team.

Ben, My experience with these posts is that you can usually find one among those readily available to satisfy your needs. I would be suprised if one Roland post wasn't close to another although I am not familiar with this brand. I have had a similar situation with Fadal, for example. If you have a post that's nearly what you want you can (a)make minor edits to the G-code files manually, or (b) use the post-generating option in Pro/Manufacturing to modify the post itself. David
