Tool change location button
« on: September 01, 2006, 01:41:00 PM »
Hi,

This is probably very simple but I seem to be overlooking the answer. How do I change the coordinates (X,Y,Z) for the "Tool Change Location".

Is this changed within Mach 3 as a setting or are these coordinates set when I load my G-code from my pp.

Thanks in advance for everyones help.

Chris

Should find it on the settings page.

Thanks for the reply Hood,

I guess I was a little too general in my last post. I see where one can change the coordinates on the setting page... trouble is for some reason it will not allow me to change the coordinates. I can type in numbers but when I click out of the box my new coordinates do not save.

How do I get these new numbers to save?

Thanks for any help.

Chris

I think I had the same problem when I set mine up just hit the enter key to enter the changes on each one ..
    I hope that helps ..

Ok, Now I feel really dumb   :-[

Sometimes the simplest things escape my grasp.

Thanks Garyv for your help.

Just an FYI  you will need a new tool change macro to read the tool change pos from the DRO's. If you would like I can post a new tool change macro (there are many that have asked about this in the past few weeks)  and upload it to the FTP server.

Thanks
