no you should put this part of code into

main menu -> Operator -> VB Script Editor window

an test the code wirh the green >|| button,
without running any M6 T someting in MDI

Code: [Select]
Function CW()'Rotation CW
   Dim x As Integer
   Dim CTPos As Integer 'Carrousel Tool Position Relative to OldTool Position
   CTPos=0

CWPos = 2

   ActivateSignal(OUTPUT9)'Turns the AC Motor On cw
   Sleep(50)

   For x=0 To CWPos
      While IsActive(INPUT4)'Wait for INPUT4 is off
        Sleep(10)
      Wend
      While Not IsActive(INPUT4)'Wait for INPUT4 is on
        Sleep(10)
      Wend
   Next x
   CTPos=x
   DeactivateSignal(OUTPUT9)

it is only a prticular test of this part of code
anything is possible, just try it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

i notice that when i run in mdi it popup a message window say CW rotation 2 and the turret moves 3 positions then i modify the code CWPos=5 and the same popup window but this time rotation 5 and the atc move 6 positions

the modify

For x=0 To CWPos -1

For y=0 To CCWPos -1
anything is possible, just try it.

I try But this time the magazine motor turns a little bit i think the problem is in the sub it is not calculating the number of position

thats why i asked to use the


MSGBox "CW Rotation: " &CWPos

and

MSGBox "CCW Rotation: " &CCWPos

to see that the calculation of steps is right
anything is possible, just try it.

i Think there is something wrong here


'Sequence to determine the least travel to move for TC, CW or CCW
'atp = Actual tool position, rtp = Requested tool positon
Sub LeastTravel()
   NewTool = GetSelectedTool()
   OldTool = GetCurrentTool()
   NTool = 16 ' Number of tools changer holds
   CWPos = GetSelectedTool() - GetCurrentTool() ' Assume a CW move
   If CWPos < 0 Then ' CWPos < 0 ==> rtp < atp
      CWPos = CWPos + NTool
   End If
   CCWPos = NTool - CWPos
   If CWPos < CCWPos Then
      call CW()
   Else
      call CCW()
   End If
End Sub

no your CWPos and CCWPos are not global:


wrong:

Sub Main()
'Global variables declaration

Dim CCWPos as Integer
Dim CWPos as Integer
...

right:

'Global variables declaration

Global CCWPos as Integer
Global CWPos as Integer

Sub Main()
...
anything is possible, just try it.

I Real Appreciate you help we are cnc builders please post me private message if you need any help now it is working perfect i had to modify some small changes

'Sequence to determine the least travel to move for TC, CW or CCW
'atp = Actual tool position, rtp = Requested tool positon
Sub LeastTravel()
   NewTool = GetSelectedTool()
   OldTool = GetCurrentTool()
   NTool = 16 ' Number of tools changer holds
   CWPos = GetSelectedTool() - GetCurrentTool() ' Assume a CW move
   If CWPos < 0 Then ' CWPos < 0 ==> rtp < atp
      CWPos = CWPos + NTool
   End If
   CCWPos = NTool - CWPos
   If CWPos < CCWPos Then
      call CW()
   Else
      call CCW()
   End If
End Sub
