I have been wondering if this is how you are "supposed" to do it. I have 2 tool paths for different tools. One is an End mill, and the other is a Vee-bit. The tools are different in length. I use both tools for all different thicknesses of wood. So my question is, do I need to Regen the tool path in Mach 3 when I load the second tool path? Do I need to re-zero all 3-axis and regen the second path? Since I change the tools manually it seems like user error can cause a lot of problems. Is there a better way? I guess it I use the same size wood every time I could just set the tool properties? I am very confused on this topic.
The regen toolpath is just to redraw the picture you see in the toolpath window. Sometimes you have to use this button if the toolpaths are zoomed way out. It has nothing to do with the way that the machine runs.
