Hey everyone,
I’m new to he linuxcnc world and this forum. I have a small problem that bugs me and I hope someone can help me out.

My cnc is working fine as long as I don’t start a ngc-file. All axis move smoothly and the spindle is rotating is it should be.
But when I import an ngc file from Fusion360 I always get the following error:
„Error in xxx.ngc line x Requested tool 1 not found in the tool table“
I added a picture in the attachment.

My tool.tbl file is filled up with tools and also with tool number 1. I tried to change the number of the tool in the ngc-file but it didn’t work.

Hopefully someone can help me out.

I hope I added all the needed files, if there are any missing just let me know.
Using Linuxcnc 2.8

Best regards :)

Moved to "PyQtVCP"
Besides having negative pocket numbers i do not see anything else wrong there.

First of all thanks for your help.

@tommylight
I notice this too, but when I change the pocket number to 1,2,3... and save the table, after a refresh everything is the same with the pocket numbers. This means they are all negativ again.

@TurBoss

are you running on master version ?

Not really sure what you mean with that? What is a master version and how can I find out that I use one?

Tried it this morning and everything works fine. Loaded the file and started the cycle.
Only some latency errors but I will come back to that later.

it can be found in github
github.com/kcjengr/qtpyvcp/
github.com/kcjengr/qtpyvcp/releases


that is the version on we put the new features and test
it has the latest features but not stable like releases

www.qtpyvcp.com/install/index.html

check the standard install it only will install the runtime environment( releases )

and developer install will give you all the development tools


Thanks for your interest

I am getting the exact same error and cannot figure it out. Whenever i add a tool to my list (probe basic gui) the pocket is set to -1. Changing it always sets it back to -1. Running an T1 M6 command always puts out an Tool does not exist error (even though T1 it is in the list). What is even funnier: When i press the "touch off current Tool" button it is touching off the tool, posting the distance and then deletes all entries in the tool table (overwriting the file as well). And the touch off macro does not finish (after deleting the tools). Im am running stable 0.3.8 release.

Any idea what the problem might be? One thing i noticed is that my ATC Tab does not work. I kind of ignored since i am not planning to use it anyway since i have to manually change my tools. Could it be that this is related to my problem?

Had the issue of tool number -1 some days ago and the only way i could change it was to edit the hal file and connect tool_requested to tool_changed, start LinuxCNC and do a tool change, then edit back the hal file. It was on a machine with 8 pocket tool changer.

so i did some more messing around. When i copy over the too table from the sim everything including touching off tools works. However as soon as i hit "save tool table" all the pockets are set to -1 and eventually the tool database gets cleared and overwritten again. I have no idea what is going on. Could this be a problem with metric vs imperial?? My machine is set in mm and the imported tool database is in inch.
