NativeCAM is Features renamed

This morning I found a very strange behavior, I think it's better to illustrate it with a video, I do not know if I should do the steps in a certain order to get that these things do not happen
I spent time studying the file you posted and it lead me to functions I never really edited before because this code written by Nick never caused a problem. I think newer versions of python are more sophisticated and surprising events happened when the treestore was empty. I think I solved something and I encourage everyone to switch to the updated ncam.py
P.S. Your video is very well thank you

I only say thank you and wish your and your familie all the best.
After i get nativecam working today , i am sure lcnc gets a lot more atractive because of you and your work.
Have a nice time and greedings from austria.
Congratulations for your DIY mill, it looks sturdy and well thought. I was pleased that you milled the demo wheel and since you did not ask any help, it makes me believe that it is intuitive enough. I wish you can use it for plenty of projects and if you find an issue or something to improve, ask me and I will try to answer asap.
Thank you for your nice answer.
I have test natcam since yesterday , and there are no problems for me. All subrotins work fine together the probing things too.....
I finished build my diy mill the past week (buildtime about 4 weeks) and now its perfekt to get a big candy from you with natcam....
Its my secend mill i have . the first was a chines bf 25 clone.
And with this i use the old fern features . since its posible to include gmoccapy with your stuff, lcnc is much better to use .and simple things to milling get very easy.
Thanks again ....

I touched off with tool 1 (tool length offset = 0), than I loaded tool T7 M6 G43 with offset -6,25 and started the code (just drilling), the tool begins drilling about the tool compensation over the workpiece and thats why it would not go through the workpiece.
Very strange, as If i unload the tool with T0 M6 G49 before starting the code, it is fine.
When I was developing and debugging I found it annoying to have times after times a request to mount a tool that was allready mounted, this is why it will not ask to remount it again. G49 is in my init string but I can only guess it is also in your's. Using T0 forces to unmount the tool at the end and when restarting since no tool is mounted it will ask for T7 and also issue G43.
I changed Change Drill and Change End Mill to issue G43 even if the tool is not remounted. I will later when I am back next month add in the Preferences dialog the option of forcing or not a remounting of the tool. I ran tests today and to me it seems OK now but my experience is limited with this compensation. G43 H parameter is the number of the tool selected so someone could select a different tool without mounting it for the length compensation but I have no idea at all why he would want to do this.

You stated it was the design you posted a screen shot, isn't it ? I will investigate from that point

What kind of behaviors are you talking about here ? I consider adding last code of T0 M6 G49 G0 X0 Y0 a temporary work around and will work to find a permanent solution

something went wrong with my update, NativeCAM doesn't work anymore. Could you lend me a hand with it please?
I removed some code I added yesterday. It seems to me that it is buggy in python and I found another way to do it.
Hope it works for you now

Onething, i start Nativecam and when try to run any Feature i get an error,
Someone can help me with this?
My installation is under Debian.
Have you change the SUBROUTINE_PATH in the
inifile ? It is trying to execute select.ngc from lib/utilities
Read the ini files in the ncam_demo directories
