Yes thanks, That's what I've been doing. It works but I'm realizing that 2axis is most of the work that will be done on this machine. The machine is a knee mill where the knee is the Z-axis. I'm keeping the quill as is to run by hand. It's used for tooling and one off parts. Basically, I've copied the Trak mill. Late last night found a fusion 360 post-processor for the Trak mill with a manual Z-axis. It's very cool, if it encounters a z-move it pauses the program and prompts you to move the z-axis by the programmed amount. It needs to be tweaked for EMC though. I'll probably need some help with that.
