Free CAM Post Processors
Post processors are a critical part of any CAM system. Their basic function is to translate the toolpath you see on screen to machine-readable code (often referred to as G-code) but with the right post processor you can reduce machine cycle time, remove manual editing and provide more information to your operators for a faster setup time.
Hawk Ridge Systems provides no-charge SOLIDWORKS CAM & CAMWorks Standard post processors to our customers for a range of 3 axis mills and 2 axis lathes including those machines/controllers listed below.

Custom CAM Post Processors
Hawk Ridge Systems can tailor a CAM post processor to suit your and your machine’s specific requirements. We’ll customize safety lines, tool changes, home position calls and sequence numbers just the way you want them. Output program information and tool lists in the header so your operators have setup information at their fingertips. Provide job setup sheets that allow your operators to see tools, max spindle speeds and Z axis depths. Edits like these and more are available for your purchased custom CAM post processor. If you are a Hawk Ridge Systems customer, we will continue to make future changes if needed with a current subscription/maintenance program. With this you will have peace of mind, knowing that we’re only a call away.
