    Default Editing post for specific G53 at end of program

    Hello there. I have a Haas MiniMill 2 and MasterCAM 2021 and the "Generic Haas 3X Mill" post. I would like to edit the post so that every program ends with the vice in front of the doors (X-10, Y0, Z0). I don't want to have to do this for every program. Could someone point me to the line that needs to be changed and what to change it to?

    Thanks.

    Don't forget to add M5 to the end of that. Get your spindle winding down on it's way home instead of waiting for M30 to do it after the fact. Though depending on how your machine processes M codes, it may go faster setting a low spindle S call at the end instead of M5. You'd have to test to find out which is faster. That is... if any of this matters to you.

    The line in the post script you're after I can't help you with.

    Something to look at is Haas has user defined g-codes, I think in the manual its called alias g codes. On mine I set the end of program to G201

    G201=

    M8
    G53 Z0 M5
    G53 X-10 Y0
    #501= #501+1 (Hidden Cycle Counter)
    M30
