hello is there a way to add a H# on my mach 3 page ??? I would like to add it by the tool . it does not have to have the length as the T # has that already. Just like to have it so I can feel comfortable  doing tool changes .

I have only had to use that G43 when manually driving to a specific Z height or double checking s z height . G90 G00 G43 h# Z#;  as far as tool change a large VMC does not require it to use z heights during manual work but it is required in a tool path ( program )

That's where I was confused when doing a tool change at work I did not have to have a line like this

At work I can buy just call up T# m6 and it's all set.


Now here is a question
When I run a path with m6 T# the mill wants to drive up in Z and I break out of the program.  I looked to find a spot where I can change the tool change position but I can not seem to find it ?

Tha KS it was quite simple . I was thinking that the T# would do it like on big mills . 

Simple fix was to MD I G43 H# then manually switch T# . Everything worked out good .

Also I made sure all the cutters were reading the same 4" by calling g each out and going down to my 4 " setter then adjusting lengths and saving tool offsets each tool. My height gauge was close but I made darn sure they were right at the mill. Making injection mold inserts and want then right on. I even made sure I came down on the setter each time and set zero not coming down and adjusting up. This will help with any back lash I would guess. 

Big thanks

I am not new to machines at all just the small machines like my IH cnc. Now I have seen so many videos and read forums and post .


this is what I have done and still not correct !!


1 .Measure all tools with height gauge and enter them into tool table and set each cutter style on the left then SAVE
2.Home out machine
3.using my master holder ( with indicator ) tool #1 come down to work piece zero and set Z zero
4.check each cutter on my 4 inch tool setter ( )

I have noticed that one of my cutters was off by 1/4"  now I have double and triple checked my lengths and still not sure what's going on.


QUESTION
do I need to run a program with a T and a H value for it to correct its self ?
