PP for Anderson Strtos Pro Tool Changer

Post by robbie9gallagan »

I need to edit my PP for Anderson for the tool changer...

All I need to add is to subtract 90 from T to set H..
Example:
begin TOOLCHANGE

"G17 G91 G28 Z0 M95"
"M92"
"(TOOL#[T])"
"T[T]"
"M11"
"G0 G90 [XH] [YH] M13 [S]"
"G0 G43 [ZH] H[T-90]" ????? this is what I need but need to declare a variable???



kinda sound like algebra but I hop it makes sense..

I am going to try and add a variable to do it..that is how it is done in the post I have from AlphaCam..

Hello robbie9gallagan,

I am afraid that you cannot add a variable to the post processor other
than the ones that the post processor outputs.

But if you can let me know which product you wish to amend the post processor
for there might be another way of doing this.

Cheers,

Mark.

Its for Photo V-carve.. The one I have now works fine accept for changing tools..

I have to manually change the numbers now... not a big deal, but I want to make it more automated to speed up the process..
