How do you call a tool offset in mach3 turn?
« on: March 13, 2017, 10:58:43 PM »
I have not been successful in getting a tool offset in Mach 3 turn.     I see all sorts of talk about macros, but so far no examples that I can follow.   This is getting frustrating

mgreb,

M6 Txxyy   where xx is the tool # and yy is the offset . The M6 Macro is a call for a tool change and whatever scripting is in the M6 takes place.

T0101 - would be Tool #1 with tool #1's  offset
T0201 - would be Tool #2 with / using Tool #1's offset
