Tool offset / tool slot
« on: October 08, 2008, 06:32:54 AM »

In turn mode, if I am using 2 tools on one slot (slot nº1 for example), I can call them as:

T (toolslot) (tooloffset)

T101 (this will load offset 1)
T102 (this will load offset 2)

The X and Z offsets are working on the DROs, but the tooltip information and tooltip radius information displayed on the mach toolpath or in any DRO that points out to the current will only point out to tool number 1 with offset nº1.
I think that mach looks for the toolslot insted of the tool offset. :-\

Can anybody confirm this? It is a bug?

Not sure, dont use tip radius info and not even sure if it works. Turn is way behind mill in development but now as there are a lot more turners using mach than before our voice is starting to be heard :) I know Brian is in the middle of a couple of big changes to Mach and these changes concern both Mill and Turn but after they are completed then Brian is supposed to be looking at turn and getting all the tool issues sorted . It may be quite a while though so dont hold your breath;)
