Tool change?
« on: June 21, 2014, 03:55:22 PM »
In my code I have tool changes set in the code.
 When i start mach3 tool change ignore is selected as a default. is there a away to configured mach 3 to default the tool change ignore to see the tool change in the code.
So i wouldn't have to go click the ignore button every time mach 3 is started.

Dont really follow what you are meaning but there are 3 options for tool change on the General Config page.
Ignore
Stop spindle wait for start
and finally
Auto

First does exactly that, it ignores any tool calls in your code.
Second will stop the spindle and wait for you to press Start and continue. I also think the M6End macro may be used in this instance.
Last will look at the M6Start macro and do whatever is in it.

Options 2 or 3 mentioned above will set Mach to default to them.
