Might want to look over the following links.According to the link there is no need.

"No post processors necessary. All native g-codes are automatically generated or can be manually edited within the application."

What kind of errors are you getting? Have you tried all the factory posts? I know it is only a few, but have you tried them all?

Thankyou foryour replies guys......
I am getting illegal subroutine errors and m code errors when trying to load a gcode file..  Flashcut says what line its on but when I open the text editer all the code is horizontial and has no line numbers so it is impossible to find anything. I sent the same file to Flashcut and it didn't do that on there end , so they told me to contact My cam provider for a post processor...  Flashcut should work with the Fanuc post but i am still having issues....

Can you post the text file.Also there is a check box to activate in Tcc for Block Numeration. Doubt if its post processor thing.Basically Flash cut does'nt have the answer to issue.I found from past experience they always point to post processor as the issue when its a programming problem possibly.If your controller can read a txt,or tap,nc, extension it can read TCC language.If post the tcw. file Ken possibly open it up if he has that version your using.Which version are you using?According to TC Overview weblink it states it can "Perform post-processing setup".

Sorry i didnt reply sooner I have been swamped with work.  Here is what i get . I attatched the gcode file also . if someone has Flashcut maybe they can try and see if it works for them.
I am using Version 4.0.48 of Flashcut and version 14 of tC and version 3.5 of TC cam
