Default Any solidworks CAM users here? What do you use for post processor?

I do a lot of work in solidworks and I'd like to use a camaster post processor with the software, but what comes with my stinger 1 isn't compatible. Is this something Camaster can help with? If not, does anyone here have a successful solidworks cam/wincnc setup?

Post Processors are on the software company,, If the software comapnys do not do this then they cannot sell to literally a thousand differnt machines.

Contact Solid works ,, As well there are some here who probably have done this. I never used it direct to machine and that was a decade ago is your version direct to machine ?

Thanks for the replies James. I will contact dassault.

Which code do you need? G code or the post processor? For the post processor I have only used the one that comes with vectric v-carve pro 10 so far.

I'm not trying to customize the post processor, just trying to get it to work with solidworks.
