you can also try to replace

this code:

   Call SetUserDro (1152,YPos2 - YPos1 - CurrentToolDiameter)

by:

   Call SetUserDro (1152,YPos2 - YPos1 - (CurrentToolDiameter/2))

if you push your probe by Hand, is it switching imediately, or maybe after 3mm push ?

i think you do a Manual toolchange ?

than you have in Config -> General Config

panel Tool Change
option -> Stop Spindle Wait for Cycle Start enabled.

ok i have tested the following code here on my machine,
and it showed allway the correct diameter, did about 10 runs.

Code: [Select]
Rem VBScript To center probe outside diameter Metric Version
Speak (" psizionarsi CINQUE millimetri sopra il pezzo") 'Avviso Vocale
response = MsgBox ("   5 mm    SOPRA IL PEZZO")

Sleep (1000) ' pausa di 1 secondi
Speak (" CONFERMARE centro pezzo pieno") 'Avviso Vocale
Message "INIZIO CENTRO PEZZO PIENO"
Sleep (1000) ' pausa di 1 secondi
response = MsgBox ("CONFERMARE CENTRO PEZZO PIENO")
 
CurrentFeed = GetOemDRO(818) 'Get the current feedrate to return to later
CurrentAbsInc = GetOemLED(48) 'Get the current G90/G91 state
CurrentGmode = GetOemDRO(819) 'Get the current G0/G1 state
CurrentToolDiameter = GetOemDRO(43) 'gets the current tool diameter

If GetOemLed (825) <> 0 Then 'Check to see if the probe is already grounded or faulty

    Call ProbeGrounded()
    Exit Sub

Else

    XCurrent = GetDro(0)

Rem Probe up

    YNew = YCurrent + 75

so it Looks like you have no tool change selected in Config -> General Config,
or no code in M6Start macro.

for a Minimum you Need

 tool = GetSelectedTool()
 SetCurrentTool( tool )

in M6Start

courious, because the messagebox Shows only the coordinates where the probe was hit and the Diameter of the probe.


from the data it Looks like 70mm not 80mm  ???


when you watch axis dro's are they about +- 38mm when the probe is hit ?

can you mofify the code:

msgbox  "YPos2: " &YPos2 & " YPos1: " &YPos1 & "Tooldiamter: " &CurrentToolDiameter   


to:

msgbox  "XPos2: " &XPos2 & " XPos1: " &XPos1 & "Tooldiamter: " &CurrentToolDiameter

i have tested this code here:

Code: [Select]
tool = GetSelectedTool()
Dim UsersName As String
UsersName = AskTextQuestion("Please enter your name:")
Message "Please change tool now" & UsersName & "!"
MsgBox "Current tool at start of change is "    & GetSelectedTool()
SetCurrentTool( tool )

run fine.

post a copy of your M6Start as an attachment, probably there are characters you do not see
in a normal text Editor.
