Gpost next tool call up

Hi,



I need some help with the placement of the next tool call up that is output to the nc code using gpost.



Currently my code is output with the next tool call up just before the tool change.

Example:

M1

T2

M6

N200(BORING ENDMILL)



What I am looking for is to place it after the previouse tool change.

Example:

T1

M6

M1

N100(FACEMILL)

G0G90G54X1.Y1.S3000M3

G43Z1.0H1M8T2

M98P1000

G91G28Z0

M1

M6

M1

N200(BORING ENDMILL)





Thanks

Mike

You mean:

Sorry

In the first example I left out the initial tool call because it's placement is fine and I was only trying to demonstrate the next tool call relative to the M6.



M1

T1

M6

N100(FACEMILL)

G0G90G54X1.Y1.S3000M3

G43Z1.0H1M8

M98P1000

G91G28Z0

M1

T2

M6

N200(BORING ENDMILL)



Since then I have improved it some and my code is like the next example.

M1

T1

M6

T2

N100(FACEMILL)

G0G90G54X1.Y1.S3000M3

G43Z1.0H1M8

M98P1000

G91G28Z0

M1

M6

T3

N200(BORING ENDMILL)



The guys on the floor would still prefer the next tool call in the same line with the next Z approach but this will do for now.

Try :

In G-Post window: Machine codes > Tool chenge Seq. > [X] Output next tool preselect with tool chenge
