You can choose to output spindle speed in decimal format. Perform the following steps to do so.

First make a backup copy of the post processor configuration file "fanuc10.fp" located in the "output_def" folder of your VX installation folder (e.g., fanuc10_bak.fp).

Next, edit the "fanuc10.fp" file to change the SPINDLE_SPEED_DECIMAL flag to "TRUE." By default this flag is set to "FALSE." This flag is located under the "General Settings" section of the file. See below.

# General settings.
SPINDLE_SPEED_DECIMAL:TRUE
DECIMAL_PLACES:3
LEADING_ZEROS:FALSE
TRAILING_ZEROS:FALSE
ARCCENTERMODE:INCRFROMSTARTPT
