    Default Can you import/export a tool length table on Cent V or VI?

    I have a job that is going to repeat fairly frequently and I'll dedicate the tool holders for the job. Is there a way to import the tool lengths into the offset table with the program? Does H01 thru H12 (my machine only has 12 tools in the changer) have a specific parameter number, so I could write at the beginning of the program something like this:

    PXXX = -14.275
    PXXX = -9.208

    and so on for the whole tool table?

    I know I could use different H numbers, say like starting at 50 and leave the lengths in the table, but that means having to have H numbers in the program that start at 50 and if I repost the code, that's going to require hand editing and so on. Seems like with the parametric programming it should be possible to have the tool length table in the beginning of the program so it will populate automatically....

    Thanks, Brian

    Thank you! I'll have to test it out, but I found it in my Centurion V manual... looks like this:

    G10
    P600=-14.875
    P601= -9.500
    G11

    G10 being "write enabled" and G11 being write off. P600-P699 are the 99 tool length offset parameters. I'll have to actually test it and let you know if it works.

    Well, that didn't work as I wrote it, any other ideas?

    Figured it out, the parameter numbers were off, it's P601-P699 for the Centurion V machine and P2101-P2199 for the Centurion VI machine.

    ..All on one Line? G10P601=-1.2345?
    then G11 makes sense

    No, according to the manual it's written like the example below:

    G10
    P601=-5.100
    P602=-7.200
    and so on...
    G11
