Not sure if this was posted here recently but AutoDesk has added a Masso Lathe Post Processor for Fusion360.  I would be interested in knowing how well it works.  Just search for Masso to see the available posts.

I did try that one. It works as well. But I noticed that the XYZ screen display did not match conventional lathe orientation. Then I saw it was a mill post process. But it worked. Just the tool paths where not easy to see. The XY plane was as if it was a mill. I use the Mach3 Lathe Post Processor now with fantastic results. I customized it to not go home after the end of the program. I use a tail stock support and going home after program would cause a crash. You can get the post here. Scroll down till you see, Mach3 Lathe, https://cam.autodesk.com/hsmposts and follow the video below about what to do with it.

To use with Fusion 360, which is what I use, see this video by John from NYC CNC. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EodQIY25tU

For every one else.... You are on your own.

I have successfully ran, CSF settings (Constant Surface Feet, aka Variable RPM while cutting), threading, profiling, boring, drilling, parting, and facing. I do not use tool changes. So I don't know if that works. No issues yet.

Hi Matt

Have you seen this Post processor for Masso? It is written for Lathe.

No I have not. I'll try it out and see how it works. Thank you for the link.

Hi guys.

Is there a post processor for fusion 360 and masso for plasma that works OK

Justin

Hi Justin,

I have been working with Auto Desk to make a Plasma Post Processor. I am unable to test it myself as I do not use Fusion. I would be greatful if you would give it a try and provide some feedback. Just be careful and maybe give it a dry run before cutting anything.

The THC codes should now come out according to feed values specified on a property. The default to 500 mm/min, but perhaps there is a better value.

Probe and probe offset values are set with properties as well and should be coming out.

Let me know how it goes.

Cheers Peter

Hi Peter .

I am new to all this CNC stuff . I could give it a trial run but at this moment I don't think I am the best person to give it an accurate assessment or feed back of any value sorry but thanks for the offer

Justin
