Can this be done? I'd like to design a program using Mastercam and then getting the G-Code for it. I've seen someone with software called PT4Sx and you enter the G-code and then you can see how it looks on the converstational prototrak mill? Thanks guys. I just find it easier to program in Mastercam than pushing 200 buttons on a prototrak.

I don't have a Prototrak, but this youtube video appears to show how to do it with Mastercam.

yes I've watched that. i got the software and everything but I don't have the Prototrak Machine definition type to enter into the Toolpath. How can I add this machine to the list in Mastercam?

Have only used a prototrak a handful of times, have used several other conversational controls where a key combination (done purely by accident) will bring up a text screen with the underlying G-Code.
