Hi,

I post this here cause I think this is a probe basic problem. I want to work with tool numbers >1000 cause this way i can easily code the type and diameter of the tool into the tool number. this helps me with organising my tools. Linuxcnc is limited to 55 tools in the tablebut can use numbers up to 99999. at least the manual says so:
linuxcnc.org/docs/html/gcode/tool-compen....html#sec:tool-table

But when I try to change tool i get the error: tool 3200 not found. but is in the table:
;Tool  X Offset     Y Offset     Z Offset     Diameter     Remark

anyone an idea?

In Tooltable i use, there is a column POC, and the number entered is equal T number. And I can use large toolnumbers.

in axis ui

This is a tool table created by probe basic. This is why I think it is a qtpyvcp issue

Have posted this to qtpyvcp dev group, we just made some changes in dev version to expand the tool table limit and it is no longer restricted to 56 tools in the table, that release should be coming very soon to the quickstart install version.

I messed a bit around.

I updated with
git pull
and then pip install --update -e .

and restored my ui file afterwards.

then I added this to my YAML
data_plugins:
  tooltable:
    kwargs:
      # specify the columns that should be read and writen to the
      # tooltable file. To use all columns set to: TPXYZABCUVWDIJQR
      columns: PTXYZDR
      # specify text to be added before the tool table data
      file_header_template: |

and deleted the old tool table and made a new one with probe_basic.

Now tool numbers >999 work. BUT wen I change tools my diameter and Offsets are not updated until I press the reload table button

I am a bit confused here.

many thanks for your support and sorry that I can't help

Patrick,

What do you mean the diameter and offsets are not updated?
Are they not updated in the diameter and offsets readouts in ProbeBasic?
Or are they not updated in the ToolTable widget?

The tool table plugin SHOULD be watching for the when the current tool changes and sending signals to the display widgets for them to update themselves. Wondering if there might be a breakdown there.

Thanks,
Kurt

The tool table is updated and the tool table widget too.
But other widgets are not. There is still the old diameter, length and tool name. I will make a video this evening.

What is also odd is that LinuxCNC is parsing tool numbers als float now. Maybe this is causing the trouble.

Thanks,

Patrick

I upgraded linuxcnc today and reinstalled qtpyvcp, this solved the issues.

slowly it is time to finalize my gui and freeze to make sure I don't mess things up. At The moment for me just two things are missing. A bigger tool table (I know you are on there) and an input / Calculator for setting wcs.

Thanks Patrick
