To those who have made the conversion or upgrade to the Centroid Acorn. What are you using for using for Cam and what Post Processor are you using. This would be for the PM-940M or CNC. Thanks.

Fusion 360 is very popular now for modeling and cam. It has a centroid output processor. I believe it’s still free to education, hobbyists and even small businesses.

I guess my next question is, are you using the standard centroid post processor that is on the Fusion Post Processor web site? Thanks .

Centroid is one of the post processors standard in Fusion 360, no need to download it. It seems to work fine without need to customize it. Also, see the picture:
