Mach3 and G-Rex / Re: Why does Mach 3 need a tool length?
« on: June 14, 2014, 04:53:04 AM »
Ok at work we use the tool changer  religiously and not once have I ever set a length for the cutters.
hass
hurco
YCM
Vison wide
eumach

all of these machines we set the cutter off the work price and run with it . All in the same off set .

we use g90g43h# in all of our paths along with the m6t# .


so basicly we never set lengths of cutters we just scratch them ( pick them up off of a 1,2,3 block) load the program and run it.  

now at home I won't be able to just kick off the program and sit back down and program the next job I will have to tend to the tool changes and do it manual :( lol . I hope this makes sense.

I do understand  lenths as well as the fidia I have a laser and it picks the length off all the cutters sorta like I would have to do in mach 3 then touch off on a work price with a tool that has been lasersd and enter my z offset in .

I just curious why I have to go with the last route with the lengths . The machine should know its position as it has been homed out correct?. I just ordered a couple more holders so I would have cutters and drills
made up I only have 5-6 tools that I use .

thanks in advance

Mach3 and G-Rex / Why does Mach 3 need a tool length?
« on: June 13, 2014, 12:21:01 PM »
Ok I run all sorts of mills at work and we never have to enter the tool length of any cutters . We work off offsets and manually pick up all of our cutters and use the tool changer everyday.
The only time I ever need to get a length is for calibrating my laser on my fidia but the rest of the machines we NEVER need length.


The only reason I ask is I want to pick up my cutters like I do at work and do manual tool changes in my IH cnc ???


Besides I don't have an extra holder for a dedicated indicator nor do I have a height gauge ???
