Is there a way to open up the built in gpost without opening pro manufacturing?

Terry,

You cannot run G-Post or the Option File Generator, that comes with Pro/NC,
with out having Pro/NC running. It uses the Pro/E license. The only way to
use G-Post outside of Pro/NC is to purchase a standalone version.

If you are interested please contact me directly.

I think it is nit exactly true.

You can actually run Option File Generator with the follwing command progpostq -sy:2 without Pro/E running.

Daniel,

You are correct that you can run the Option File Generator with out having
Pro/NC running or a license checked out. To process your tool path through
a post you must have Pro/NC running.

Sorry for the confusion!
