tool dro
« on: March 24, 2010, 09:04:40 PM »
I have been using a custom screen set for my router.  I'm having trouble with it changing the tool dro when it calls for a tool change in the gcode. I have a custom macro that depends on this to change.  The standard 1024 screen set changes the tool dro  with no problem.  I really want to use the custom screen set, but I don't know what to look for or what could be causing this.  Any ideas?

You might open your custom .set with Screen4 (or MachScreeen) and verify that the DRO is assigned as illustrated.

I checked, that is set correctly.

Can you attach your screenset and I will see if I can find the problem.

Seems to work fine here, call M6T1 and the DRO changes to 1, call M6T8 it changes to 8 etc etc.
How are you calling your tool?
