I am incrementally learning CC and working toward more complex projects. My present challenge is how can I control the tool retract height during tool changes ( I need to raise it up so I can get longer bits into the collet) and then return cutting the project? I thought I saw an opportunity to control this in an earlier version of CC. . . but then, maybe not.
I have not formally studied G-Code editing but I think this is something I can control by tweaking the G-Code. Does anyone have any experience with this or direct me to an explanation on how I can over-ride the retract height of the tool bit so I can change them?
I think the line that needs changing is G0Z10.000 The 10 mm seems to correspond to the height of the first bit.
I’m pretty darn sure this is a copy of the code that corresponds to the tool change from 3/16" to 1/4" . . .
