Hi,
i recently changed from Fusion360 to Solidworks 2021 and want to share my Postprocessor that works quite welll for linuxcnc.
My modifications that i missed from this PP :
- i removed the "G28 X0Y0" in the beginning and the end, left the one for "G28 Z0"
- it shows you the size of the stock to work on in the beginning
- it shows you the estimated machining time at the end of the gcode
- the tool-comment section now won't give me an error when opening the gcode in linuxcnc
If you have questions, feel free to ask. If you want to modify it, don't expect much help from me. I'm no expert. :)

I updated my PP with several smaller bits. The most important is the working compensation part (G41/G42). The old post added a 20 to the pocket number. This didnt work with my tooltable, where T=P number. I removed the addition of 20. To make compensation usable in CAM, make sure to check the following boxes:

I don't know if it works with a lathe, you can at least try it.
