- [Instructor] We're finally here.…We're ready to post process our job…and actually see some G code that we can actually run…in a CNC machine.…Now, to recap what we've done so far.…First things first, is we created an assembly…inside of SolidWorks.…We've brought in some fixtures, like a vise,…or multiple vises, and then brought in our part.…Then, we took that part, and we added some stock…around that part.…Then, we created a coordinate system…on the upper left-hand corner.…And then, we established that as our G54 position.…Now, we're pretty much ready to output the code.…
If you also remember, in the last video, we did establish…that we have multiple work offsets here, so, it's going…to actually output the code four times for every one…of these individual vises.…Let's go ahead and see what happens.…Before we do that though, let's go back over to the job…itself and just kind of recap.…Over here click on Edit.…We're doing a milling operation.…Our model is the inside piece, which is the stock…from the inside.…Then we have the actual outside block,…
