jasminder, its a worm drive.
do i need to keep vb script running in the back ground or just close it.
when i push the play button on the vb script it asks me for current tool and the turret will move a bit.
but when i type t0202 into the mdi bar nothing happens

remember that the m6 calls for the start and stop macros for the tool change

Do you have any links or PDF of the machine or turret?

M6 is not required in Mach Turn. The correct way to call a tool change in Mach Turn is T0202. This will automatically call the M6Start macro.

You do not need the VB script editor be open in the background. Save it and close the window. Make sure you are saving the M6Start for the correct profile as I mentioned earlier. Also could be Mach is already at tool #2 when you issue T0202 so nothing happens. Check the Tool DRO in Mach.

Looks good here. Is you profile name "cnclathe"? If so, do you have the M6Start macro under C:\Mach3\macros\cnclathe ?
