Tool definition parameters

Recommended Posts


I am trying to get information's from 20004 parameter to get

(T12 | D12 |No. Flutes = 2 |  DIA. - 5. mm)
(#8. | Face drilling - C axis | )
(     |  Speed = 3820 RPM VC = 60.00 mm/min |  )
(     |  Feedrate = 687.60 mm/min |     )
(T16 | D16  |No. Flutes = 6 | DIA. - 10. mm)
(#21. | 2D Dynamic Mill | )
(     |  Speed = 3979 RPM VC = 125.00 mm/min |  )
(     |  Feedrate = 1909.92 mm/min |     )

So what I did is :

Created numerical variables to store the results of each value in the string (total 27 of them)
if prmcode$ = 20004, tool_no  = rpar(sparameter$, 27)

when I add tool_nf variable in any postblock which isn't mtlchg$ value is always same as the first tool
if the first tool have 2 flutes every other tool will have same value
But if I use it in mtlchg$ postblock its updating all the time

I cant see what I am missing here

Should I use nci_rewind$  to  get what i need ?
