I didn't reply sooner because I never got e-mail notification that this thread was updated.

It turned out that we can't post process with only a basic TopSolid 7 installation. We must contact the VAR and the VAR creates a stand-alone post processor installation for all post processors required by the user. 8)

[Solved] Cant post process in TS7

Hello everyone,

How can I access the post processors in TS7?

I've been running thru tutorials and I want to test some NC code.

I believe I am looking in the correct place but there are no post processors available to select and everything is grayed out.

Drag Handles - LOVE IT!

WOW! That's a nice feature! I just used SHAPE, COPY FACE (untrimmed) and after creating the face I was given the choice to extend it by dragging handles. Fantastic! 8)

P.S. this was in version 6.12

I was finally able to get the reseller moving. He then had some difficulty with downloading and/or creating the install DVD but disks shipped from France finally solved the issue. I then had about 1 day to play with it before we got buried with work so for now it sits but I'll get there eventually.
