A problem you'll run into is using the var parameter file to save parameters and starting at 5190 only gives you 19 tools until you get to 5210, why not store the parameters in as P1, P2, P3, P4, etc in the tool table under the pocket variable of the tool they're assigned to?

If somebody with a 21 pocket or more tool changer modifies your ATC sim starting at 5190, they're going to be over writing stuff that'll cause them a crash.

When those were written some 6 years ago, there was an issue preventing using pockets, there were many issues with the Tool table actually, limited to 54 tools etc.. this method was used to circumnavigate those issues and limitations. I haven't kept up enough with the tool table and pocket updates to know where it has progressed too. But yes the var file method requires additional parameter slots for more tools.

I don't have a list, there aren't many and only in the Mxx macros in the subroutine folderin the sim config

I have seen some very strange erratic behavior during tool changes, running g code, conversational code output, etc. I really want your GUI to function properly due to the potential. I have gone back to Gmoccapy for my daily stuff for now. I'll keep chipping away at it but for now i have to move on.

Thank You,
Chris

Without configs to look at it's impossible to diagnose what you're talking about. I've been running my machine in a production environment for almost 4 years now with probe basic and it's dead reliable with no eratic or unexpected behavior. It sounds like you're missing subroutines in your config file maybe if your experiencing that. I know I requested you post them up a number of times, and it would have certainly shortened the helping process considerably. But i agree that if you have your machine working with gmoccapy the way you want it for production, there is really no r eason to change it up. Using what you are most comfortable with is the most important thing!

Hi Chris,

Would you be willing to share any experience / knowledge on how you did the Fadal retrofit?

It would be awesome to learn from someone with experience. 


Thanks,

Frans
