Hello everyone, I have a 5axis wire-arc CNC machine for additive manufacturing. I am using APlus plugin for creating toolpaths. It has a specific post processor. My problem is that the dimensions of the parts of machine and span of the axis dont match my real CNC machine. I would be grateful if anyone could help me understand how this can be solved. Is there any inbuilt function or method in Mastercam to modify the machines or will I need to modify the post processor? Thank you

If that helps, yes. I'm new to mastercam. Does changing machine definition solve the problem?
