The process for setting a tool is really no different across newer and older machines except that some of the newer machines have tool measure functions.

For setting the tools if the machine is setup to have Z0 as the table face you would touch the tool on the table face and subtract anything in the Z common offset from the machine position.

What you are seeing in image3 is not that the offset is reading in X but that the relative position of X. Ok so now what are you trying to view? And what is not changing that you want to see? Now the above values will not change until you instate your tool offsets via G Also as Heniz has stated there are parameters to set depending on what you want viewed.

As an example some parameters state to view the abs position with or without tool offset. My 10series parameter manual is buried somewhere at home but I have a 15series I can reference at the moment that will pretty much match the 11series you have. Just let me know what you are trying to view and what you are expecting and not getting as I am still a bit foggy on what you want to see. Hey Heinz…I hope all is well. How has the weather been by you? Steve The opinions in this post are my own and not those of machinetoolhelp.



But before we do that, let me tell you about a tool that will help you tremendously in learning and in doing CNC Macro Programming. As such, any tool that will make it easier to understand what the g-code is doing and even to test it by simulation before you put it on your CNC machine is very helpful. Graphical backplot makes it easy to see what the tool motions are: Transport cluster lets you run your CNC Macro Program simulation: Change speed, jump ahead to the interesting parts, rewind to see it again, vary playback speed, and more. Simulator Instrument Cluster shows you what the machine is doing. It even shows you what modes are in effect, what macro variables are being accessed, and what their values are.
