Metric Probing Post


Good Morning,


I am looking for a base post processor to make a save-as of.

I am creating a metric probing post for an Okuma (Renishaw Ins Plus). All my previous probing posts have been in Inch format but now I require a metric one I cannot see any anywhere.

There are none in the MACH OOTB folder and there are none on the GTAC download page.


Does anyone have any ideas?

If you are using Post Builder, if you have a post with one units, and you need to support the other units, you can:

"Output Settings" tab -> "Other Options" tab -> specify an "Optioinal Alternate Units Subpost"


I've never used it, but there should be docs on it, and it should get you what you need...

Thanks for your response. I have set up this alternate sub-post and it seems to function well at this early stage. I will see how it develops.
