Simple Post Processor question

Creator

How do you get to create a postprocessor? Is the program within NX, or is it a seperate program? I found Post Configurator in the command search, but for some reason the command is not available. Is the post builder an additional add on to NX? Thanks for any input.

Post configurator is shipping with NX and is installed if the typical installation is used.

You need a CAM license and a nx_post_config_adv license, which is part of all newer CAM bundles.

What license bundle do you have?

The older method is to use Post Builder.

This is started separately from NX (alster as needed for your NX version):

"Windows" menu -> All programs -> Siemens NX 10.0 -> Manufacturing -> Post builder

 

Post Configurator is the "go forward" posting technology, but I haven't had a chance to play with it yet, so I don't know how it compares to Post Builder.

This is the answer I was looking for. Thanks a lot! Good to know about where the technology is heading though.
