Post Processor Files

Please check any files for updated versions on a regular basis as we regularly improve and fix bugs in them.

Download the Newest Bechtel Center Post Processors here: Post Processors

The Bechtel Center has developed a set of custom post processors to work with our CNC machines. There are five separate post processors currently available:

  • Haas next generation [CNC Mills]
  • SR-100 Haas Gantry
  • Haas Turning (for use with all non live tooling)
  • Haas ST20-Y [Ask TA for Assistance]

The proper post processor must be selected when post processing code for use at the Bechtel Center. The ST-20Y post processor works on the ST-20Y lathe only and supports live tooling and turning CAM. Check with a TA before using the ST-20Y post processor. The Haas next generation post processor is for CNC Mills only.
