In NX CAM, OOTB the system and only sends a tool change event to the post if if senses that the tools are different.
If you want to force a tool change, this can be done by customizing your postprocessor. You need to check for a new operation, and trigger a tool change yourself. You might also look at adding the "Extra Tool Change" event to the start of path.
I am curious, what would you change to?
What happens on the machine if you repeat M6 with the same T number?
I do this often to force information or events into a program:
Call in the exact same tool from your library or copy the tool. Place whatever operations you need in the copied/new tool. Any operation under the new/copied tool parent forces a tool change.
Another option is to add a UDE (e.g. "Force Safe Restart"), then have that handler (in the post) deal with the appropriate gohome/tool change/restart output.
Saves having to deal with editing 2 tools if you have to make a change.
Or (if you want it for EVERY operation) just set up the post to do a complete toolchang/initial move during the "First move" event
