I'm not really sure what your asking... MasterCam can output g code to a file that EMC can load and run. If your wondering which config to use try the Stepconf Wizard to generate a config for your machine if it is a stepper driven machine.

I know G-Code and stepconfig.
I'm running since longer time a EAGLE to EMC configuration to drill my selfmade electronic boards.

Now I have a big mill and want to run CNC via EMC.

I do my mechanical projekts with SolidEdge 18 .
Now I try to generate a "EMC" G Code via Mastercam. That means a postprocessor has to "compile" for my machine.

Mastercam has F.X. a 3 axis Fanuc P-Processor includet. My understanding is that I have to have something for EMC...

Or am I wrong ?

I saw that but I'm using the newest version X4

And as I understand, between 9 and X4 they changed "machines"

now they use for mill file extentions: WMD; control ; instead of the old .txt

Too bad they didn't invite a site where you can just search for things.
Oh wait, they did.. quite a few actually (google, bing, yahoo, etc) ;)

Here's what a google search brings for me:

Don't sweat it. Hope I didn't sound too harsh (didn't mean it)

Cheers,

Hope to try the transformation meanwhile next week.
I'n still not finished with the mechanics of my new mill...

Wonder if I''ll be able to make "validation" if everything works, but will report anyhow.
