Mastercam postprocessor installation
Mastercam postprocessors are delivered to customers as Zip-files. The zip package is unzipped to a Mastercam shared folder. Typically the folder is C:\Users\Public\Documents\shared Mastercam 202x\ (or in WIN-FI C:\Käyttäjät\Julkinen\Julkiset dokumentit\shared Mastercam 202x\ tms.)
Unpacking the zip package does not require any software. All you have to do is right-click on the file in Windows Explorer and select "Extract All ..." and then "Browse" and search the Mastercam shared folder.
Once the package has been extracted to the shared folder the files in the package will go directly to the correct folders:
cnc_machines\ and mill\posts and/or lathe\posts
Cimco's postprocessors uses their own .dll utility. You can download it here;
Run the downloaded .exe installation file and the cp6.dll file will be installed.
If you are upgrading your old Mastercam postprocessor, please note that when using the old Mastercam file the previous configuration files may sometimes remain in effect. This is fixed when you select the properties of the machine group under File -> Replace (machine definition)
