Generating NC code? Answered


When I try to write the NC code, I get the error:

Postprocessor Error- Failed to get translator version from registry. Can you advise how can I fix it?

Hi Farzaneh,

You are probably getting this error because you haven't specified a post processor, this is what turns the toolpath you created in PowerMill into something which is readable by a CNC machine.

You can select a post processor by right clicking on nc programs and selecting 'Preferences'.

Nothing was selected in the video as the post processor is specific to each individual machine and will be different for everyone.

Hope that answers your question!
