Hello,

I would like to ask if there is a way to refill the atcha widget on startup?
Usually I would do it while referencing the atc but my atcha doesn't need referencing, so it would be neat to refill the widget without an extra button.

Thanks Patrick

Replied by KCJ on topic refill dynatc widget on startup
Hello Patrick,

This is the NGC code that is used to fill the ATC widget after homing, it is located in Lcvette's M13 remap.
#1 = 0
o130 while [#1 LT 12]
    #1 = [#1+1]
    #2 = #[5189+#1]
    (DEBUG, EVAL[vcp.getWidget{"dynatc"}.store_tool{#1, #2}])
o130 endwhile

You could remove the actual ATC homing logic and adds M13 to your startup code, or just hit the button after starting the machine and all it would do is load the widget.

I am working on a completely revamped set of ATC subroutines and python remaps, that will allow the ATC to retrieve and store data to the tool table file. Once this is done the ATC will be able to read and load from the tool table at initial start-up, instead of having to wait for LinuxCNC to be on and enabled.

Cheers,
Kurt

I reused the code of the tool changer scritp for my button solution.
and will add the M13 to my startup.
Handling directly the tool table will be an nice improvement.
It is quite impressive what you guys are doing here. Many thanks and Thanks for all the support!

saw the video of the tool changer and touchoff!! looking great!!
there are some fixes to the tool touch off routine coming soon that fix a couple bugs we found when touching off with a wcs offset active, so hopefully that will be out in the next couple days with the next release!

keep up the awesome machine retrofit!

I will have a look at it. I really like your scripts. They are well documented and help me understand how the files work, so I can adjust them to my needs. There is one thing that would be good to have. A way to flag if a tool should be touched of with radial offset or not. At the moment I am thinking of using a range of tool numbers for my facemill and large diameter tools.

Cheers Patrick
