Direct External Post-Processing with CAM-POST
CAM-POST is integrated in Creo NC Sheetmetal to enable you to directly set-up the post-processors and generate MCD files.
In general, Creo Parametric and CAM-POST are installed separately. CAM-POST must be installed and authorized prior to using the Creo NC Sheetmetal interface.
To specify that the post-processor is present, set the following configuration option:
campost_dir <postpathname>
where<postpathname> is the CAM-POST load point directory.
Using Creo NC Sheetmetal, you can:
Create post-processors.
Select which post-processor to use.
Execute post-processors with option to run CL file.
Execute post-processors with options directly upon output of tool path.
