This thread is for user donated post processors that are usable with PlasmaC.
I'll make this sticky and unlocked and just keep current versions here.
If there are comments or corrections I will delete them after they have been actioned.

Current PP's:
PP creators need to be aware that LinuxCNC does not allows analog/digital input or output while cutter compensation is active.

Fusion360 post processor for use with PlasmaC. There is also a manual and a test file included.
Please use cautiously at your own risk. It is working for me, but there could still be errors.
Please post any problems or questions over in the existing topic: Fusion360 Post Processor Topic

You will need to remove the .txt extension from the post processor file and the Fusion360 test file.

I've been speaking to Fastcam who have been in the profile cutting software space for a long time regarding a post processor. They asked me If I could provide:
Working Sample code for your Controller
A Matching drawing for the code (DXF / CAM)
Programming manual, if available
I thought it might be a good idea if we could come up with this test suite and place it here so that it is available for any other requests.
I don't mind designing a part that has every Plasmac feature in it and running it through Sheetcam, but it would also need to be output from Fusion360 which has kerf offset compensated code.

So starting with a square part, can we brainstorm the features that need to be on that part to exercise every feature of Plasmac.s Gcode. eg holecutting, spotting, tool change, feedrate setting, kerf compensation (F360), engraving. What else?

I loaded this Sheetcam PP and got this error on first try.

An unexpected error has occurred:
...oaming\SheetCam TNG Development\posts\PlasmaC.scpost:162: attempt to compare number with nil
Post processing failed

I recall seeing this error before but cannot remember why. Would you be able to post the job file.

I ran the job here and it ran fine, the ngc file is attached.

I ran a diff on the PP from this thread and my working PP and they are identical.

Now I am confused. I just installed the latest Sheetcam and tried it with both the release version and the development version. Both gave the same error result.
