yes #5189 was just a numbered variable used to store data in the macro

Thanks for the confirmation.  And yes, I can see where someone with a 24 tool changer would run out of contiguous numbers.

Speaking of which... have you (or other qtpyvcp/PB devs) looked at the new LCNC tool dabase yet?  I've read the manual page, but I cant see if there's a UI somewhere to explore the features.

I'm wondering if it would make quite a lot of the remap/ngc gymnastics I've found in just about every toolchanger example moot.
keep going its nice having more eyes finding things at the scrutiny level you are employing!

Nothing is ever easy and I have to be persistent to digest any of this...

TurBoss has been actively working on the tool database and has it sorting image files for tooling, it's pretty slick. But i haven't played with it yet.

I did find the axis-sim with a tool.db sidepanel - a little difficult for meto follow.

In other news...

Both M11 and M12 have #<_my_current_pocket> = #5170 at the end.  But I can't find #<_my_current_pocket> referenced anywhere.

Only thing close is global parameter #<_current_pocket> (from the tool table).

Is this another parameter for testing that didn't get incorporated?

it appears it may be redundant in this scenario, but it has stored the current pocket to numbered parameter #5170, it may be precautionary in the event the if statement fails to complete, but even then im not sure it would be needed. however it may be used in the sim code somewhere but i have not looked at that yet to see. in any event it is available globally as written so could be useful. I will leave in the distribution subroutines for future use.
