Hi Gavin,

I’m supposing that you are using MasterWorks for a MasterWood CNC and that Mastercam is a sub program of MasterWood.

MasterWood uses the layer names to automatically apply tooling to the DXF files.

The set up of the layer name must follow the coding explained in the MasterWood manual section 4.9 DXF format.

If you down load the Quick Design  libraries you’ll find a Polyboard6-en.reg file in the polyboard-en folder.

If you double click the file and accept the registry modifications it will set up some new post processors among which you’ll find a DXF-MasterWood pp.

This can be used as a template to set up your own post processor, you’ll have to change the tool numbers and edge drilling codes.

When you export using the post processor you’ll get DXF files with the correct layer names and you then have to load the file into MasterCam with the special open technical DXF command. 

If you need help you could consider buying an hours set up and we can look at it together.

All the best,

I am trying to import from Polyboard to Mastercam ATP. Mastercam has a Polyboard profile for its ATP, but I’m not sure which postprocessor I should use to export from Polyboard.

I tried using the default DXF postpro but haven’t had any luck. I’ve never used Mastercam ATP before, so I could be doing something wrong in Mastercam, but I thought I’d check here if anyone can give me advice.

Kind Regards
