Option for adding G43 to Machining Operations

Postby 1251691060 » Mon Sep 17, 2018 6:54 pm

I keep all of my tool offsets in the machines rather than in the VMSW tool library. Is the a simple option that allows the post to add a G43 selectivly by operation?

The G43 H# is typically defined in the tool change section of the post processor.
T[TOOL_NUM][DELIMITER]M06
G43[DELIMITER]H[TOOL_ADJST_REG]
For example, if your tool # is set to 2 and adjust register is set to 2 in create/edit tool dialog,
the posted code would be as follows
T2 M06
G43 H2
Where H2 points to the tool table in your machine/controller for the height offset.
