Diabase Print Wizard
Install the Diabase Print Wizard on a PC by downloading the installation files from here: H-Series-Wizard/releases
CAM Post Processor
The attache Post Processor is written for the embedded CAM software in Fusion360 and HSMWorks in Solidworks. The instructions below assume that one of those pieces of software are already installed.
Download the attached file and put it in an appropriate folder. From the Post screen, in the "Configuration Folder" section, navigate to the folder where you put HSeriesPost.cps. If that is the only .cps file in that folder, then it should automatically populate in the pulldown in the "Post Configuration" section. Otherwise you may need to select it explicitly.
You can always navigate to your machine controller from any device that is connected to the same network. The Android app attached automatically searches the network, and has an improved interface for smaller devices.
