Setting Tool Offsets
« on: February 21, 2011, 11:04:53 PM »
Read the documentation and I guess I'm not seeing how to set the tool diameter. I'm not really worried about tool height offset right now but can someone tell me where to put the tool diameter at and to save it? I have the cutter comp in the code I wrote but of course without putting in the tool diameter it won't apply that to the cut.

Go to Config menu, tool table and edit it.

You can also specify the tool radius in the G-code

G42 P0.125

for a .25diameter tool

We are having issues with the Machturn tool offset setting.  I can setup the part zeros but when I go to touch off the tool for the offsets, in the tool table editor nothing happens, nor will they clear when Zero World buttons.  I have watched the video on the site many times and followed along.  What am I missing?
