Re: Lathe tool change

In post builder:

Right click on the "T" word -> Edit

You'll probably want to increase the "Maximum" value from "99" to "9999" (or whatever if there are more than 4 digits)

You might also (in "format" section) want to "Edit" the format ("Tcode" or whatever) to make sure it is 4 digits (or whatever) to left of decimal place

Re: Lathe tool change

Thank you, now it's fine, but how can I add T word in the next block with wear offset T0101.Change in T word reflex globally so I can only use one of these forms T0100 or T0101.

Re: Lathe tool change

If you add T -> "Tool Number", yes.

If you add T -> User defined expression, no.

 

So Add a T -> User defined expression

set the "expression" to "100 * $mom_tool_number + $mom_tool_adjust_register"

 

(or whatever)

Re: Lathe tool change

Thank you Ken for trying to help me.

The problem is that I can't use the same T address with different user defined expressions.

If I have in one block T with User defined the expression

"100 * $mom_tool_number + $mom_tool_adjust_register", and if I set in for example first move block T with User defined expression "100 * $mom_tool_number" it will change User defined expression in the first T block to "100 * $mom_tool_number" and vice versa.

Re: Lathe tool change

Don't copy As "referenced blocks" one block to the other.

Either create the second block as a completely new block, and add a new copy of the "T' word,

or "copy As" -> "New Block"

Re: Lathe tool change

And you'll probably want to delete one of the 2 existing blocks
