Hello, I have just started using the Nomad 3 for work. I am working on a piece that requires multiple tool changes, but since I am inexperienced with CNC, I ran the code without any material to verify that the code was working the way I wanted it to. It all works great, except I noticed that when there is a tool change, the machine does not probe the length of the new tool. Am I missing something in my code? If so, how do I put this in carbide create?
Which CAD/CAM tool are you using?
Are the tool #s different for the two tools?
If you are using carbide create be sure to select Shapeoko/nomad post processor. If it is set to gbrl or generic gcode you wont get any tool change prompts.
This fixed my issue. I had never heard of a post processor, so I didn’t mess with it and never thought to change it. Thank you!
