"Yes the post processor costs extra. "

Correct, this is very typical in the industry. For simple, 3 axis machines, most people can custom make their own post processor quite easily with the machine's documentation. Where it gets tricky is the 5 axis machines, with vaious coolants, tool changers, etc...
