M6 and auto tool measure script.
« on: February 03, 2020, 03:14:48 PM »
Hi all!
I'm struggeling with my tool measurement. I've developed my own probe and tested that everything works.
I've also made a fully functional M6 tool change macro. Btw, my mill is a Emco VMC-100, with 10 tools.
And now I would like to make a tool measure macro that I can call in the MDI and it will run through all my tools before I start.
I've called it M10. But there seems to be a problem. My first tool, tool 1, is always shorter, or the other tools are longer....

what's wrong here??
