So here's another question: I'm downloading files that I like and plan on using, it obviously requires multiple tools. How would I split that one file into multiple files to enable a tool change?
Would I need to scroll through the gcode (which I have no idea what it all means), enter an additional line to stop and raise the Z axis to allow room for a tool change, then another line to continue?
Last one: if I use multiple files, I'm assuming I'd need to somehow mark the exact tool position for subsequent paths with different tools. I can just imagine using tool #1, pausing, raising the Z to change the endmill, loading the next file and having to re-zero tool #2. Then watching as it makes a mess of the wood since I was off by a few millimeters.
Final thought: if the "Pause" action in Carbide Motion would automatically raise the Z to allow a tool change, while memorizing where it is, wouldn't that prevent tool #2 path problems?
ps - thanks for everyone's patience helping me get going!
