If i leave setcurrenttool out, any idea what would happen??

i think, as far i have walked through your code,it will work like you expected,
because the TLC is done by your c-axis.

do a little test to see what Setcurrenttool does.


-load 1024.set
-put in the tooltable  height 10.0 for tool1
-enter tool 0 in the tool Information dro
-push zerro z button
-enter tool 1 in the tool Information dro
-watch z coordinates

hi,

is it possible that your are doing th TLC twice ?

1. with the c-axis (knee)
2. SetCurrentTool(Tool) (m3 internal TLC)

just thinking while i went through your post's.

hello Anna,

if you can provide a "little" (just a little bit) bit more information about:
-you're machine
-you're Hardware
-you're requiremen's

it will be easier for someone to write a "macro".

sorry Tom

Sorry guy's,

that i have to disturb.

you are talking here about 200-300-400$ Software, not about "real" (sorry to use this word),
CNC controllers (10000-20000$ aeria).

Tom

PS that is all "nice to have" option

Hello,
had the same thing with this ePid fault.

i can see you are using CSLAB as well.

here the original answer from CSLAB as i went into this ePid Thing:

--- This fault can be activated by:
---  Bad Mach3 version. Bersions newer that 03.043.045 of Mach3 can cause ePID fault.
--- We recommend to use versions of Mach3 03.043.022 to 03.043.044. We always use 03.043.022 version as it's the most reliable in our opinion.


regards Tom

PS i "downgraded" to 03.043.022 and the ePid Thing is gone

HiCON Motion Controller / Re: Need spindle orientation for tool changer
« on: January 23, 2018, 09:38:50 AM »
Hello,
had a quick look to S600 Manual. it has a internal Position control.
maybe you can use this, an enable the positioning via digital Input.
Do the feedback (in Position) via digital Output.
thats how i did it on my machine, but with a Lenze 8400 Topline
controller.
