How to Use Hypermill Post Processor Files for CNC Machining

If you are using Hypermill CAM software to create toolpaths for your CNC machine, you may wonder how to transfer the data from the software to the machine controller. This is where Hypermill Post Processor files come in handy.

A post processor file is a unique "driver" specific to a CNC machine. It works with the CAM software to make sure the G-Code output or program is correct for a specific machine build[^2^]. A post processor file can also use the intelligence of the controller to optimize the machining process, such as using control cycles, tool radius correction, sub-routines, program part repetitions, work plane switching, and more[^1^].

Hypermill calculates toolpaths independently of machine and controller. Post processors from Open Mind Technologies generate NC programs from this neutral data that are optimized to meet the customer's requirements[^1^]. The post processors are matched with the machines and controllers to be used.

To use a post processor file from Hypermill, you need to download the file (a .epub file) and move it into the corresponding folder under the Posts folder under the CAM plug-in installation folder. The next time you post-process a toolpath from inside the CAM plug-in, this newly downloaded post processor file will show up in the list of available post processors to choose from[^2^]. You can also customize or configure the post processor file using the Post Processor Generator product available in both the free and commercial versions of Hypermill software[^2^].

Using Hypermill post processor files can help you achieve error-free transfer from CAM to the NC program, and tailor-made solutions for your specific machining tasks, machines, and controllers. You can find a list of available post processor files for various CNC machines and controllers on the Open Mind Technologies website[^1^] [^3^] or contact them for custom post development.

Hypermill CAM software is not only a powerful tool for creating post processor files, but also a comprehensive solution for various machining tasks. Hypermill offers a wide range of features and functions for 2.5D, 3D, and 5-axis milling, as well as mill turning and machining operations such as high-speed cutting (HSC) and high-performance cutting (HPC), with everything integrated in a single interface[^1^].

Some of the features and functions that Hypermill CAM software provides are:

Special applications for milling impellers, blisks, turbine blades, tubes and tire molds[^1^]

Complete machining with just one CAM system and one post processor for milling and mill turning operations[^1^]

Full compatibility with all current CAD solutions, and direct integration for leading CAD systems such as SOLIDWORKS and Autodesk Inventor[^1^]

Reliable processes thanks to true-to-detail simulation and comprehensive collision control[^1^]

State-of-the-art CAD/CAM technologies for optimal programming and manufacturing[^1^]

Continuous and efficient processes, reduced processing times and extremely high level of reliability[^1^]

Additive manufacturing capability option for hybrid processing with simultaneous additive and subtractive processing on one machine[^3^]

With Hypermill CAM software, you can get the most out of your machine tools and increase your competitiveness in the metal cutting industry. Whether you are working with simple or complex components, Hypermill can help you achieve high-quality surfaces and precise toolpaths with ease and efficiency. 248dff8e21
