Where is the “minimize tool changes” box in Carbide motion or in Fusion 360, I found “Reorder to minimize tool changes” and it is in Fusion 360 in the post-process menu when you create the nc file, I can try that and check my code after. But since I create file using only one tool I dont know if this will do anything, but I will try it, thanks
I just did the test on post-process without the selection “Reorder to mini…” and another with checking the box. in both cases in give the same code.
M9 ( M09:Mist Coolant Device Off )
T24 M6 ( T:Tool Number:24 M06:Tool change )
S17000 M3 ( S:Spindle Speed:17000 M03:Spindle On )
G54 ( G54:Zero offset #1 )
Remove the M6 from your gcode if you don’t actually need a tool change command. You can modify the Post processor to ignore it or set it as a user option.
2 things then
- Select one toolpath in the ui, not the whole set of them (for the purposes of getting this sorted out)
- select the “minimize tool changes” box
You should get a .nc file with NO “T” commands in it.
If you don’t, try this post:

Many thanks, I will be give it a try , I will let you know the result. Could take a day or two before I get the chance to do this.
