Movement after tool change
« on: February 13, 2016, 12:26:06 PM »
In my workflow (simulated of course! Still using TinyG), when I get a tool change, sometimes I jog the XY a little to do the touch off with the new tool. After I cycle start again, it moves back to where it was before the tool change, then back to the next position...is there a way I can write some code to eliminate it going back to where it was, and after cycle start, go to the next position?

Seems like I should be able to grab the XY for the next line?!? Dont know how buffering and other things might effect this...maybe something simple?!? Don't know!

Thanks

The only reason it returns to the point it does after a tool change is because you told it to (;-)

Guess I should have looked at M6End!   ::)

Thanks!
