Working with NC_Sheetmetal, post processing does not turn on the torch. Machine needs a G58 to turn it on and a G59 to turn off. the .lst file has this where the turn on should happen;
10>TORCH/ON 10 10 ***WARNING*** + INVALID MAJOR WORD - TORCH , IGNORED 11>PIERCE/ON,CONST 11 11 ***WARNING*** + INVALID MAJOR WORD - PIERCE, IGNORED
I know it has to be I have made an error in the post processor setup but I don't know where.
FYI, the "torch" is actually a router head but as long as the TORCH/ON puts a G58 in the code I will be fine.

You need to add these word to your vocabulary file first. Do a search in some topics form a few months ago. Fred Nemecek from Austin NC has answered the solutions for this. Regarding the G58/G59 issue, once you fix the vocabulary stuff, you can add some FIL code to do that for you.
