Loading a radius cutter into the tool table
« on: May 15, 2013, 11:24:14 PM »
i am trying to load a cutter into the tool table and as it is a radius cutter with a point on it when i touch off the tool i then need the z to travel a further -1.5mm to get the cutter cutting correctly when cutting.

i have tried to enter -1.5 into the height wear section of the tool table but that doesn't seem to work.  sort of just addding the extra to my measured tool offset is there a better way?

i would have just expected that i would zero off the tool as usual then add a figure into the 'height wear' and hey presto it works.  but no cigar.
