Hello
Is there someone who already changed the pathpilot post to work with LinuxCNC?
I just did some test runs (facing, drilling ops, profiling) and it seems to work fine. There is only a difference in the tool change command.
Output in pathpilot post is:
T0606 for example
LinuxCNC wants T3 M6

Maybe there are some more differences?

Use the "EMC" post instead, that was the old name for LinuxCNC.

(Less easy for a lathe)

For my mill I use the EMC post
But it's for my lathe

One solution would be to remap T to make your lathe act like a Tormach lathe.
There is an example remapping in the sample configs (sim/axis//lathe-fanucy ) This gives you wear offsets and a system that changes tool on the T-word without needing an M6. (Which is what most lathes do)

I think that was easier than expected?
I merged the lathe-fanucy config with my own config. When I use the Tormach post to generate code, Linuxcnc can read the tool changes. Also when I manually give a t0606 command in the MDI it's working.

I think that the system expects to find a wear offset (or possibly base offset) in 10006 and the other in 06.
You can alter this behaviour is you want, it is all handled in the toolchange.ngc file

Yep, thanks
That was the only error I was receiving when loading a file.
I will edit it tomorrow.
