tool table radius and diameter mode
« on: September 14, 2012, 07:04:13 AM »
Hello Everyone

The machine is set for diameter mode

I am setting up a tool table with a rthand knife tool as t0101 and a parting tool as t0202
when setting the t0202 everything works exept that the tool goes to the radius instead
of the diameter.
I need it to go to diameter not to radius
All help to achieve this happy state of affairs will be gratefully accepted
Fred

Just for the record- I found out what the problem was

I hadnt noticed that there was an entry in the tool tip radius DRO of the tool
table of the one tool.
This then returned to a position about half of where it should have been and I mistook the position
as diameter . clearing the DRO rectified the problem
regards
fred.
