Re: Tool_Renumber Gadget to renumber tools

I came to a similar conclusion after spending time with the text files that were output and trying to come up with a way to display them in a useful way to the operator.

I've updated my VCarve Pro's ShopBot post processor to pass the tool name and then modified my ShopBot controller Manual Tool Change code to display it in the Tool Change dialog box (was limited to just tool number previously).

Life is simpler now. Thanks for the utility of Tool_Renumber and the reminder to focus on what I was trying to solve in the first place.
Be kind.

I fat-fingered a 0 for spindle speed and broke a bit. While I normally try check everything, this one slipped through. So now the popup dialog shows the minimum rpm of all the tools, and the tool that uses it. Whether the tools have been renumbered or not. If you see a minimum rpm of 1600, you may want to check your tools in your toolpaths. :shock:
