i would suspect metric and imperial Units mixed up.

in the work Offset table are no  G52 values, only G54 ...

G52 values are only avaliable in Vars (5211 ...)

so what is the problem to have these offset's stored in UserDro's like you did?
and why are you trying to store G52 offset's in work offset table?
for the moment i can't catch the entire Problem.

this will read G52 (X/Y/Z) and write G54

Code: [Select]


for the moment i am sure what you realy try to do.

now you are talking of the tool table?

to store values in the tooltable in lathe mode the following will store X/Z

Code: [Select]

SetToolParam(ToolNo,3,XOffset) 'write X
SetToolParam(ToolNo,4,YOffset) 'write Y
DoOEMButton(316) 'save tooltable

but there is nothing for Y to store.

you can use one of the wear values

dont know a OEMButton to open fixture table, but:

Code: [Select]
  DoMenu(1, 9)

should do the same.

here: https://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php?topic=19482.0
is an other list i use.

Looks great so far, let's see what the testing will bring up.

as mentioned earlier, if you put this code in M6 and a:

Code: [Select]
newtool = GetSelectedTool() ' get the newtool

at the begining a Standard postprocessor should be ok.

good luck for testing. :)

The best would be to have a Y offset page in the Turn Tool Table instead of only X and Z. I do not know how to do that. That's why I am using the work offset.

did something simular on my Tongil, because it can have SK40 and BT40 tool holder's and i had to know witch type it is for
ATC because Z Position is different. i made this by VB script and stored the Information in an extra text file. additional i stored
Information witch tool number is in witch ATC place so i do not have to remeasure Offsets because i have more Tools then
ATC places. simular to tool Offset handling in lathe mode but for mill.

would be great if you share your findins/experiences.

i am thinking to do the same on my Tongil Mill.
i whanted to use a customised M6 macro for the tool offset's, so every "Standard" turn postprocessor would work
to create the code.



are some variables listed where Offsets are stored.

have you looked in 1024 screenset to diagnostic page, normaly all offsets are in there.
