how do I change the generic post to output N numbers only at the tool change?

Recommended Posts

  • Joel_S changed the title to how do I change the generic post to output N numbers only at the tool change?

I'm actually trying to accomplish the same thing but for a prototrak post.

I modified the code as Craig-B suggested but now I only get the N number for the first tool in the pgm.

The following tool changes don't produce an N number. 

Any idea what could have caused this?

There is likely a 2nd Toolchange section...scroll down and you should find it

yep, I was actually just editing my original post to say that I found it lol thank you

I'm embarrassed with how long I've been manually adding N codes to my tool changes for my lathe post, hoping this fix will work and save me time in that regard as well.
