SolidWorks CAM Post-Processor for Stepoko/Shapeoko?

My company recently acquired a Stepoko CNC Machine from Sparkfun. We are looking to utilize SolidWorks new CAM feature with the machine for some in-house prototyping. The Stepoko board runs on Grbl v1.1, so I need a post-processor that will output to a format like that. None of the standard machine profiles included with SolidWorks seem to work. I've downloaded and tried to run this post-processor someone developed for just this kind of process, but I still have errors. The G-Code continues to write G41 commands which are not accepted with GRBL for whatever reason. That's not the only issue I have, but it's the main one.

 

Any suggestions on how to get things up and running?
