not using master tool
« on: February 27, 2013, 05:14:15 PM »
I have read the manual but still didnt understand the master tool mode.
i dont think i have it turned on but i set it to 9 anyway my lathe has an  8 tool ATC.
I set the z to a common point for all tools and x on centerline then adjust WCS for where i want z on the workpiece.
If I had something important to say it would be here.

Hi,
If the "Master T Mode" button on the Tooling page is not on (I.e. not green) then the value in the Master Tool # DRO does not matter as the DRO value is only used when in master tool mode.
