mach3 tool remember
« on: July 11, 2010, 05:29:47 AM »
hi guys
i have a milling with a 16 atc carousel and my problem is that when i reboot mach3 the tool go to position 1 cause the brain is sending this to the plc via modbus
so i always have to rotate to tool 1 before i turn off the computer  or mach3
how i can resolve this ???

I personally prefer to change back to tool 1 at the end of every G-Code file, that way I know where everything is when I start afresh but others may think differently ;)
Have you tried setting "Tool Selections Persistent", its lower left of General Config page.

Hood has it right, same here at every job end return the machine to it's starting point in both position AND modal values.  The rule here is leave it like you found it.

As to the machine setup and control codes YOU are the only one that knows how it works VB or Brain wise.(;-)

Without seeing your brain and M6 macros I cant say, then again with my expertise with VB I probably wouldnt know even if I saw them ;D.

From the quick look I have had I cant see how that macro or Brain could operate an ATC.
Can you explain how the ATC is actually controlled as it may help me understand, especially as VB is a weak point for me, one of many ;)
