tool_info Help.

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I am currently using Generic Okuma 4x Mill and it does not have the tool_info. I was wondering if i could get some help in adding it into my post processor. Attached is a screen shot from MPFAN.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Did you search through the header for other "tool table" options? (Possible it has a different switch name?)

Look for: 'tooltable$' (I think that is the spelling). When set to "1" or "3", we call the pre-read loop. 

(Calls 'pwrtt$', and allows you to filter on 'null' tool changes, by checking if 't$' is greater than 0. (MP signs t$ negative during pwrtt$ processing, if a tool number repeats.))

If I'm speaking what sounds like greek to you, then I would suggest starting with a fresh MPMaster, and just modifying that for your needs.

There is also the Tech Exchange, where you can download a copy of the updated Okuma 4X Posts. Any of the "OEM" Genos or MB Posts should have a ton of updates, including CALLOO88, either "Hi‐Cut Pro" or "SuperNURBS" support.

Thanks for responding Colin,

I downloaded the post off of the Tech Exchange, it works fine i'm just trying to figure out how to add the tool info.

Your first suggestion doesnt show up in my post but thank you for your help.
