Hoping i can get some help, I have everything setup and running with my probe screen, however when i run a tool change, ie, T2 M6, my machine runs to my tool change location, and then no further actions are taken from there, no option to confirm that i have put in T2.

It sounds like you probably need to set up hal_manualtoolchange of you don't have an automatic toolchanger to toggle the inputs automatically.

So, odd thing is, if i comment out the M6 code on line 30 of the "manual_change.ngc" macro, it appears to run fine, but doesnt give me a pause or anything to ackwoledge that i have put a new tool in the spindle.

Interesting, all the instructions for setting up probe screen tell you to comment that line set out of the .hal

The installation instructions for the probe screen have the following;

4. Delete (or comment out) from all .hal files lines of the form:
#loadusr -W hal_manualtoolchange
#net tool-change iocontrol.0.tool-change => hal_manualtoolchange.change
#net tool-changed iocontrol.0.tool-changed <= hal_manualtoolchange.changed
#net tool-number iocontrol.0.tool-prep-number

Any recommendations for what should be left in?

I've got the following in my configuration which I assume would have me covered.

In probe_screen.hal:
net tool-change probe.toolchange-change <= iocontrol.0.tool-change
net tool-changed probe.toolchange-changed <= iocontrol.0.tool-changed
net tool-prep-number probe.toolchange-number <= iocontrol.0.tool-prep-number

In my main .hal:
net tool-prep-loop iocontrol.0.tool-prepare <= iocontrol.0.tool-prepared

So I got most of it working using the latest probe screen "next generation" .
github.com/linuxcnc-probe-screen/probe-screen-ng

However I'm running into one last weird issue.

When I run a program, I get the pop up to load the tool, and when I press OK, nothing happens. It shows the manual tool change macro is loaded, but it doesn't continue and run over to the tool setter to touch off the new tool. The weird thing is, if I rerun the intended .ngc program, it will go over to the tool setter as desired, and then run the program, until it gets to the next tool change and the stops running after I swap in a new tool and press ok.

I am using GMOCCAPY if that makes a difference, there doesn't seem to be much if any documentation on setting up with this GUI vs AXIS.

Sound for me like you haven't closed the tool prepare loop.

Are you using Hal-manual tool chage or the tool change dialog from gmoccapy?

If you post your config, it might be possible to give better recommendations.

I guess this is where I am struggling. All of the installation instructions for probe screen tell you to comment out the "Hal-manual tool change" in the HAL file. Any further insight you can provide would be really appreciated.

thanks

Yes, but they also add the semi-equivalent:

github.com/linuxcnc-probe-screen/probe-s...master/psng/psng.hal

Did you add a reference to psng.hal in your INI file?
