dpslwk: I would also place Z0 near the top end of travel, but in the end it doesn't really matter where your G53 coordinate system has its origin. Of course it has to be right-handed else you would mill mirror-parts, and usually Z is parallel to spindle axis and decreases towards the bed.

udos: i got the impression you needed a template how to implement the rack-storage aspect of the tool changing.
This has linuxcnc.org/docs/2.9/html/remap/remap.h...lated_codes_t_m6_m61 explanation of how to do remap of T and M6 to g-code. Here is german version linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/de/remap/re...lated_codes_t_m6_m61

@rmu

thank you; it took a while but this looks like going in the right direction;

besides: why a simple parameter driven rack-TC doesn't exist; No need ? 
I don't think so; it is the most basic thing I go for after TLS;

udos
there are hundreds of different ways to implement a rack tool changer
and hundreds more ways to implement carousel changers
and hundreds more ways to implement umbrella changers

so linuxcnc mostly leaves this up to the user, it does have some examples in the sample configs that you have been point at already

Probe Basic has a working umbrella carousel implementation out the box only because the main developer has that style ATC on his machines, if he had rack changers he would have implemented that.

@dpslwk,
thanks for your many, sorry, empty,  words;
maybe you want to sit down and write a Novell or maybe a Manual;

Not sure why all the mess here is about, but in general
Rack tool changers can be done purely in gcode, no hal, no complicated stuff, nothing else!
A while back i tested such a tool changer on a plasma machine that has a single tool, but the routines worked perfectly.
It also has nothing to do with the GUI being used, it works on any GUI or without it, as far as i can see.
Here is everything regarding rack tool changer on this website:

Alone the fact that you get 3 pages af google answers doesn't mean there is something useful. !

tommy, do you think there is anyone here who doesn't know how to google ' Linuxcnc rack-toolchanger '

No i do not.
But i do know 99% do not know how to search for "rack tool changer" ONLY on this website, see below

Here is everything regarding rack tool changer on this website: What is ' this website '

This website means ONLY www.linuxcnc.org and it's forum.

Alone the fact that you get 3 pages af google answers doesn't mean there is something useful. !

There is plenty of useful stuff there and several working configs that you could have found instead of wasting time with this reply, that now wastes my time replying to it.
Go read those.

that code is running a 3 ton industrial wood router (Biesse Rover) and does around 30-50 tool changes per hour.
