I didn't write those Post-format files, a friend did them for me.
It is likely to be just that easy, I'd give it a try and save the originals.
If you need further help I can get metric formatted posts for you.

It works great! Thanks again!
Which is the best process to change a tools by manual not with the M6 code?
Now I generate the code with the ATC, but I have not got a changer.

You would still use M6, even without a toolchanger.

Does your machine have consistent-length tools where each tool is the same length each time it is inserted? If so then you can use hal_manualtoolchange

If your system requires you to re-measure the tool length after each tool-change you might actually find it more convenient to create G-code on a 1-tool-per-file basis.

Do give it a try, it will look different, but it is very capable.

Hi Andy!

I need to re-measure the tools.
So can I re measure a tool while the program is running?

The simple answer is "No"

The more complicated answer is "Yes, but it takes some reconfiguration and you need a tool-length measurement switch"

With a non-repeatable toolholder it is likely to be generally easier to run one file per tool. Even for making multiple parts it is likely to be easier to swap the parts than the tool, and do the same operation on all parts and then change tool and do the second op with a second file.

If you fancy using a tool-length measurment switch, try running the sim/axis/remap/manual-toolchange-with-tool-length-switch sample configuration. (Don't worry, it won't attempt to operate your hardware)
