Looking to find out how to setup up Catia to output to Mach3 :
Under Post Processor choose ICAM. When setting up the Machine, in the Numerical Control tab, choose “fanuc_16m_mil3” for Post Processor and choose “ICAM_mm.pptable” for words table.
UPDATE: The above cuts the code to 300 lines as the ICAM processor is only a demo (I think)
I had success with the following:
Under Post Processor choose IMS
When setting up the Machine, in the Numerical Contril tab, choose “fanuc0.lib” and Post Processor and choose “IMSPPCC_MILL.pptable” for words table. For the NC data type dropdown, choose ISO.
The Controller Emulator should be at the default of “cardemo_fidia.ce”
And there’s this series (about 10 hours) of training video on how to use CATIA Advanced Machining module. Very informative.
