Pause for tool change and Z reset
« on: November 06, 2018, 09:15:24 AM »
Iapologize if this has been answered before but I've only found info that partially answers my query:

I'd like to do the following: create 2 or more toolpaths, join them manually and insert between each toolpath code that would allow me to:
1-pause the machine and stop the spindle
2-Change tool
3-press button assigned to Autotool
4-Continue program clicking Cycle Start restarting spindle

Any ideas how to do that?

Thanks a lot! :)
Cheers
