Not only do you have access to download as many post processors as you want you also get minor post modifications at no cost.

What Are Minor Post Processor Changes?

Minor Post Modifications are changes to a post processor that take less than 1-2 hours and do not require any custom scripting to accomplish. An example would be removing unnecessary codes, moving existing codes to a different output location, or changing the sequence of output for a tool change. If a technician deems the requested change is complex enough that a Post Processor department staff member should complete it the customer will be notified and the Post Processor Department will take over the cycle and provide the customer with a quote for the modification. Minor post modifications do not include building a complete post processor for a customer. If a customer requires more than 3 minor changes the cycle must be transferred over to the Posting Department and quoted for billable time.
