    Default Solidworks CAM Post Processor Variable List

    Does anyone have any information on or a list of the variables available to modify the post processor for Solidworks CAM? I did download the UPG program and started modifying my post to suite but am running into some issues. Specifically I am looking to get the g c ode to post IPR for tapping and some kinda tool list on the top of the program.
    Thanks in advance
    Drew

    I got mine working. This video was a big help:
    CAMWorks - Post-Processing - YouTube

    My machine is a brother and I started with one of the Fanuc posts and modified it.

    There is a reference manual included with UPG. It lists all system variables available to the system and the user. You can, of course, create your own for your own purposes. In most cases, they have to be defined in the Master.atr file, which applies an ID to your new variable (they call them attributes).
