I would like to be able to mirror toolpaths that contain multiple tool changes, but only issue the mirror command once at the beginning of the toolpath (some of which could be upwards of 20MB).
The problem is that during the reference position return at tool changes, the mirror is also getting applied to the machine co-ordinates.
Is there some type of parameter or macro I could write so that "if" there is a mirror in effect (G51.1 X0 for eg.) the mirror would be disable just prior to the tool change, then re-instated once the G54 has been re-activated?
As a side note, I also have another Fanuc on the floor which has a custom controller similar to the 20i (mxp 200i). I have to add M95 OR M96 after the initial G54 callout, however it knows at tool changes to disable it temporarily until G54 has been re-instated.
