    Question 3D tool change

    Running a simple 3D file using roughing and finishing cycles. Estlcam post processing to PlanetCNC.
    At the tool change I cannot make the change, or zero the new tool, because the jogging is locked. I have to stop the programme. Change and zero the tool and then restart the programme from the gcode tool change line.
    Is there a better way to do this when using a simple collet chuck please?

    Do you use PlanetCNC TNG software?

    You would need to edit M6 script code in order to have correct tool change motion sequences.
    You can find example file of M6 script in installation folder of TNG: Samples/Templates/Scripts -> M6_measure.gcode

    You would need to include copy of configured M6 script file to your profiles Script folder.
