Hey /diy/,
My local fab-lab has a small cnc lathe, a Proxxon PD 400 which I need to use.
It uses nccad8 for cam and cad but I never used it, and prefer fusion since I know how to do stuff on it.
Anyway, I have a part I need to turn, I have done my cam and I now need to export my Gcode. My issue is that nccad wants kosy to be used as post processor but on Fusion, it isn't available for turning, only milling. Am I fucked or is there a way to get my .knc file with fusion?

Can you explain this to me in woodworking speak?

Well fusion doesn't want to chooch.
The gcode I can export for a lathe is written only for haas, tormach or other high-end machines, but I can't use it since it's not written in a manner that the machine I have can understand.
She wants kosy synthax, but fusion can't do that out of the box it looks like.

Still not getting it, try replacing some of your words with "woodglue"

The woodglue I can mix for a lathe is made only for haas, tormach or other high-end woodgluers, but I can't use it since it's not made in a manner that the woodgluer I have can woodglue.

Sounds like you need to get a biscuit jointer

Nccad cad and cam is absolute cancer, 9gag grade cancer. Or worse.
I realy don't want to use it, it's driving me nuts.

I recently had to run a mazak that still ran fusion 360, You can run gcode in fusion but they call it mazatrol EIA, at least thats how i understood it when I was reading up on it. Never got to check it out and the machine was a giant turd. Disclaimer: I have only been a machinist for about a half a year.

>I realy don't want to use it

Its more than cancer

My school had It together with their overpriced >10k cheese mill

You have to save your work every minutw because the Nccad7 crashes all the time

>Make a misstake
>cant undo It because fuck
Have to load last save and start again

OP here.
So I finally figured out a way: just change the post processor to kosy, edit it so as to make it compatible for turning operations and voilĂ . No more cancer.
