Hello, I have x&y working good on my mill, but I need to machine some parts before I can get Z-axis going. Does anyone have or can point me to a 2-axis post processor for Fusion 360?
Thanks!

why dont you simply remove all Z moves with a Editor
shoudt be only 2 Klicks

or as you do not have Z axis in Real just run the g-code and no axis is moving at all on Z command while the Graphics displays z

Yes thanks, That's what I've been doing. It works but I'm realizing that 2axis is most of the work that will be done on this machine. The machine is a knee mill where the knee is the Z-axis. I'm keeping the quill as is to run by hand. It's used for tooling and one off parts. Basically, I've copied the Trak mill. Late last night found a fusion 360 post-processor for the Trak mill with a manual Z-axis. It's very cool, if it encounters a z-move it pauses the program and prompts you to move the z-axis by the programmed amount. It needs to be tweaked for EMC though. I'll probably need some help with that.
