    Smile Help with post processor cam output for Fadal

    hello.. Been trying to set up my 4020 to run multiple vises of the same part. Fadal is on format 2.
    can someone show an example of something that works in cam to post to multiple fixture positions on a fadal?
    I was being told that my cam software puts the subroutine at the end of the post where a fadal likes it at the beginning? Also I believe fadal format two is similar to fanuc? want to run the same part three times in fixture position one two and three. What is the simplest way to do this.. ?

    big thanks in advance

    will fadal take G52? If so, go x8. y0. or what ever the vise spread is and G52 - and that is new xy0. I forget the cancel code.
