How to build ATC Carousel in linuxcnc ?

I presented everything in the first post
I used LPT (DB25, Parallel Port)
Thank you !

Those are connected to hardware by one of the HAL files in the config. If you ran the demo then you will now have all the files in your ~/linuxcnc/configs folder, but the HAL file for the changer looks like this:
If you are using a B-axis then you will have more G-code and less HAL to control things.
Thank you very much !
I will try it
Thank you again !

Am sorry but my configs files are a little mess
Thank Eneias Eringer very much!
Your configure make me understand port config (parport.0 is Parallel port, pin-xx is pinout of Parallel port)
Thank again !
If you link that HAL pin to the caarousel component and connect a motor of some sort to the output pins of the carousel component then the carousel will move to that pocket number.
You typically need a G-code routine to move the axes in such a way as to perform the sequence, but at least the carousel comp can be used to position the tools.
Start LinuxCNC and then go to the virtual config sim/axis/vismach/vmc-toolchange for a demo config using corousel and a G-code subroutine.
