How to Modify OOTB 5-Axis Post to Disable M128 and Plane Output

Working on a new 5-Axis post in Post Builder 11.0.2 for a Table Table machine based on OOTB Sim14 TNC Post.

 

Is there an easy way to modify the OOTB Post to disable M128 and Plane output with Absolute Output?

 

All output should reference machine zero csys.

I don't know an easy way to do this.
You can search for the output of PLANE and M128/M129 and comment it.
In the second step you have to define the 4th axis and 5th axis point.

4th axis point is from Machine zero to center of 4th axis
5th axis point is from 4th axis Center to 5th axis center.

You con do it easy in PB under "Machine Tool" "Fourth axis" or "Fifth axis"

Hi,

 

just as a suggestion. If you use the OOTB sim 14 Post Configurator you can modify it easily by 2 settings marked in the picture below.

Sorry for the confusion.

 

Machine controller does not have TCP function.

 

Currently post outputs XYZ positions during 5-axis simulataneous moves relative to moving coordinate system attached to the moving part.

 

I need post to output XYZ positions during 5-axis simulataneous moves relative to fixed point on machine base.

 

This is how the XYZ positions are shown during "Simulate Machine" and "Tool Path Simulate" is selected.

 

Thank you for any assistance.
