New in the doamine, I need your help.
I would like to run a laser tool detector on my machine.
Currently when I'm working on a piece with Estlcam and there is a change of tools, it's a hassle to remake a correct Z0.
I would like to use the laser detector to measure tool height automatically.
Here are the steps I am currently using:
Z height adjustment
- G1 X292 Y103 (Location the laser detector)
- G92 Z (Z_probe_height) This is done manually, I have not found a way to do this automatically.
- I position the axes on the top of my workpiece then G92. This is my work reference.
Until everything works. But when there is a tool change request I do:
- Tool change
- G1 X292 Y103
- G92 Z (G30 value)
- G28 Z
And not good, I find myself with the gap between tool A and B above or in my workpiece!
I know that the firmware is not really provided for this option but it seems to me that an automatic procedure (especially the G92 Z (n) after the G30) must be feasible.
Do you have an idea or another way of doing things?
Thank you in advance.
