Designing a tool changer for a Mill
« on: December 17, 2016, 10:17:50 AM »
I would like to develop an automatic tool changer since Mach4 can handle one.
Not sure where to look for how a rack style changer is set up and how the tools would be picked up such as with a drawbar.
I have been studying the Mach4 doc on Lua programming to read a file for tool positions and that's made me want to go for it!
Thanks for any guidance!

Keith,

Look under C:\Mach4Hobby\LuaExamples\Toolchanger

You will find the Lua code for several example tool changers.  WindRack is one of the examles provided.
