Thanks a lot for the post!

Is it possible to enable 5axis milling? What should be done for that?

i did start making one but got side tracked on other things

was doing a turning one, and a turn/mill one
at the moment i use a fanuc one and mod it by hand todo what i want, as never very complex on the lathe.

I'm also looking for a Lathe version of the LinuxCNC Post Processor for Solidworks CAM (which is CamWorks 2.5D). I asked Solidworks, and they suggested that I either pay them $750 to make one, or write it myself with UPG. They won't provide the SRC file for the LinuxCNC mill post processor that they already have as a go-by, and I have been unable to locate anything online.

Has anyone made any progress on this, or is there something that I could use to start with other than a blank slate and UPG?
