There's probably a switch or variable somewhere which decides this.

If it's anything like a mastercam post it may be in the top area

Adding ATC seems to have changed this and the only way I could find to add plunge was the VAR's I shared above, the only problem is it just adds it once.

And thanks for all your help folks, I appreciated it.


I changed a few lines in my post and it works perfectly with linuxuxcnc. Toolchange and all.

bevins, it certainly dose work!!

I do see one thing that I have a question on.
Under each toolchange your PP generates a G43H[T], but there is no mention of H[T] under the first tool.
How dose the machine know the correct offset for the first tool?
This must work, you use it, I'm just curious.

Leon82, thanks for your suggestions as well.

The las TxM6, which is the current...lol

You could remove All the HT and just use G43. Thats what I do. I created a custom one for my machine and just use G43 everywhere.

I wondered if it was that simple, makes sense.

I must admit seeing HT gives me piece of mind as I glance at the code, but as you say, G43 gets it done.

Thanks again for all the help.

Wish we worked closer to each other, I would enjoy a FTF with you from time to time. Vetric seems to be the best I can find to work with .STL's.
