Post Hub: A cloud-based postprocessor solution for NX CAM software

By ThomasJ

NX CAM Post Hub is a modern, cloud-based solution for postprocessing. Free to NX CAM users, Post Hub enables a streamlined process to generate production-ready CNC programs for your applications.

Direct access from NX CAM software

Post Hub lets you access more than 1,100 postprocessors directly from NX CAM software. The extensive online postprocessor library enables you to program a wide range of milling, turning and multi-function machines. It includes postprocessors for many machines and controllers, including DMG MORI, Haas, Makino, Mazak, and Okuma.

To quickly find the postprocessor for your machine tool, you can narrow down the results using the provided filters. Simply select your machine, controller, or manufacturing technology and Post Hub will present the applicable postprocessors.

All the postprocessors available through Post Hub have been developed using Post Configurator, the latest tool for postprocessor development in NX CAM. This allows you to easily adjust postprocessors to generate NC programs for your CNC machine tools.

NX CAM’s Post Configurator provide a modern interface that provides easy modification of postprocessors to output the desired G-code

Getting started

To launch Post Hub, click on the Post Process command and look for the new “Post Hub” section in the dialog box of the latest version of NX CAM software.
