Question: Why is the Communications unavailable from the Post Processor dialog or from the File menu?

Answer: This is generally an indication that the communication parameters have not been set up and saved correctly. To correct this follow these steps.

  • Go to File-->Preferences
  • Select the Com Set-Up tab
  • In the field next to the Add button type in a name
  • Make sure your settings are correct (they should match the settings on the CNC machine)
  • Click on the Add button

If you have additional machines with different communication parameters follow the steps above for each machine but be sure to give each a unique name.
