I want to include the following commands before a tool change and at the end of a program;
a. L_FREI
b. L_ZYM91 (for any vertical work…ie; A-axis at 0)
c. L_YZM91 (for any horizontal work…ie; A-axis at -90)

How to set this in postbuilder

  1. Create three new blocks containing one word of type Text with one of the commands
  2. add the three newly created blocks to the end-of-program section in the correct order
  3. depending on your tool change location you would add it to the automatic and manual tool change sections

Post-process and see if the output is OK.

You may also need to create a custom command to distinguish between the two situations with the A-axis to execute MOM_do_template with the desired M91 block. Use the custom command instead of the M91 blocks.
