Hello all,

The problem I am having is that Carbide Motion does not prompt me to change the cutters. Instead, it continues to operate with the first cutter (which happens to be a 0.25" face mill).

My set up is as follows:

iMac 27-inch Mid 2011 / 8GM memory / 3.1GHz Intel Core i5

Fusion360 CAM

mach3mill.cps post processor

Carbide Motion version 2.0.314 (2015-04-09)

I have attached some illustrative images for reference.

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thanks,

Nick
