tool change was created by thor44
when I load a program in gmoccapy the first tool change comes up I get the usual prompt on the screen to change the tool and click continue, and then there is another window that is basically the same message but when I click continue nothing happens.
Does anyone know what might be wrong?

Please post your config and if possible the G-code that is causing this behavior.

I'm not sure which files to post so I will post a bunch of them.














I think I did something wrong the first time.

thor,

Please post the file "gmoccapy_postgui.hal". You can add the files to an archive or zip file and attach the archive to the forum. I see several things that could be the problem but I think I will find the key in the postgui.hal file.

It appears that you are possibly trying to use the manual tool change from axis "hal_manualtoolchange" and the one from gmoccapy.

Also are you trying to use the automatic tool length measurement in gmoccapy? I see some potential issues with that in your configuration also. If your Z = 0 in machine coordinates is at the top of the travel for the z axis then you should have the value for "MAXPROBE = ?" be a negative value as it is a relative coordinate and the probe will try to go that relative distance to find the tool length probe.

Comment out the follwing lines in your HAL file.
# 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 => hal_manualtoolchange.number
# net tool-prepare-loopback iocontrol.0.tool-prepare => iocontrol.0.tool-prepared

Delete the contents of the gmoccapy_postgui.hal file and replace it with the following
net tool-change gmoccapy.toolchange-change <= iocontrol.0.tool-change
net tool-changed gmoccapy.toolchange-changed <= iocontrol.0.tool-changed
net tool-prep-number gmoccapy.toolchange-number <= iocontrol.0.tool-prep-number
net tool-prep-loop iocontrol.0.tool-prepare <= iocontrol.0.tool-prepared

This should result in a single toolchange dialog box that will take the offsets from the tool table for the new tool. This will not measure the length of the new tool. You will have to go throught the configuration steps in the Auto Tool Measurement section of the gmoccapy documentation to get the tool length measurement to work.

Has any one used the auto tool measurement in Gmaccopy?
I think I have all the settings correct but it doesn't work.
Does Amy one have any ideas?
