Not at all, just been there, done that, seen the movie :D
So is your macro working now or are there still problems?

Just another thought, how are you calling the toolchange? are you using the MDI line, if so what do you type?

OK, rename your M6Start.m1s macro to OldM6Start.m1s and then put the following macro in your macro folder for your profile and rename to M6Start.m1s and see if it works.

OK, will have a look later on but at least OutPut 4 is now confirmed to work. Obviously your inputs are not getting seen by the macro so will have a better look to see what its expecting. In the meantime what are your inputs meant to be? are they low or high when not on tool and can you activate them manually to check that they are being seen within Mach (OEM Trigger LEDs on Diags page)

Hood if I switch the oem trigger inputs off and i switch the input 1 to4 on I can see my inputs from the turret, it will only change as it gets to the next tool.They are set at active low but i have played with it setting it active high.

Cj
 as I said I am not the best at VB so maybe I am reading things wrong but this is how I think your turret must work;
 Toolchange is asked for so output 4 is turned on, this rotates the turret until it sees the switches for Tool you have asked for, once they are seen OutPut 4 is switched off and toolchange is complete.
 Is this how it works? Are there any unclamping/clamping mechanisms or brakes? Is the turret meant to move a certain distance after the inputs are seen?
