Tool change position
« on: January 28, 2019, 08:50:30 AM »

I'm using a small router that is running under Mach3. I have a comportment I never understand when I use M6 command to do a tool change. When I do for example M6 T1 the machine goes rapidly in z position (top of the z axis) until it reaches the end of the axis. I have check to tool change position and it is set at (0, 0, 0 ).  I was expecting the machine will go at 0, 0,0 when I do M6 command. How I can fix this strange behavior?

My other option is just to remove the movement to go automatically to tool change position. That means that when M6 command is called just stop the program and stay were the machine is. Is it possible to do that?

Thank you
