How to set up simulator plugin to test tool changer code
« on: November 13, 2023, 11:51:17 AM »
Hi everyone,

It is FINALLY time for me to test my toolchanger integration with mach.  It looks like it is possible to use the simulator instead of my motion controller, but it is not clear to me how this works.

Ideally, i would be able to clone an existing configuration (pins, signals, etc) and have it function without needing the actual servos and limit switches connected.  The toolchanger controller is connected via modbus tcp, so there isn’t any need to actually trigger inputs or outputs on my ESS for communication.

My goal is to test the lua and gcode interactions with the toolchanger

Is this possible with the simulator works? I can’t find any documentation on it.

Thanks!
