Is There a Post Processor for SolidWorks CAM?

I was hoping to use SolidWorks CAM with my new CrossFire. Can SolidWorks CAM work with FireControl? Any assistance in this would be greatly appreciated.

look for a post processor for GRBL Plasma. I don’t know if there is such a thing, but that should match up pretty well with FireControl.

The fusion 360 processor works with Inventor because both fusion and Inventor use the Autodesk HSM engine. Autodesk HSMWorks Ultimate 2020 is a solidworks plugin I think. So that might be a rout you could go.

Thank you. I will check it out tomorrow.

I am still waiting for my crossfire Pro, but I would also like to use it with SolidWorks cam. If you, or anyone else gets a post processor to work, please post help. I am very new to CNC, but very familiar with CAD.

I’m looking for a FireControl post processor for my XR table that works with SolidWorks.

There is nothing that is cookie cutter. I was going to develop one but found that designing in Solidworks, then importing to fusion360 for the cam was actually a fairly streamlined and straight forward process. I all but abandoned programming a Solidworks post processor because of it.
