Hi all.

I have a Yang Eagle SMV-1000 with a Fanic 0-MD controller. When the machine changes tools it move to reference point in all axis XYZ before starting the change. This is taking too much time and I really want to change so that it does not move the X and Y before changing tool. I'm well aware of the risk of collision, but in our case this is not really a risk due to very small workpieces.

Can anyone tell me how to unprotect the write protected tool change program? Or if I can make my own tool change program and change a parrameter so this is called by the M6 instead of the original one. That way I can change back to the old one when running other work on the machine.
