Mach 3 Tool Change - how to go directly to tool-change position?
« on: February 02, 2021, 03:42:18 AM »
I am having a brain fade. Mach 3 2010 Screenset. Fusion 360. When my machine is called for a tool-change it pauses above the work piece and stops the spindle. I have to hit start, for it to go to tool change position. Where I change the tool, hit "start" again and it carries on.

How do I remove this requirement for the first "start" and have it go directly to the tool change position? Simple things but I have no idea. Thanks in advance. Rgds
