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
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!
