In F360, I have some mill-drills https://www.lakeshorecarbide.com/altinc ... mills.aspx set up as three different tools with the same tool number:
-As a twist drill for drilling ops
-As a endmill for side milling ops
-As a chamfer mill for chamfering ops
As far as I know, this is the only way to handle this type of combo tool in F360 as the different tool types have different settings available that are required for the different ops, particularly milling vs. chamfering. I think the drill definition is probably not required as I think you could probably drill with a endmill.
Anyway, I get an error during the post about the differing geometry for the same tool number. My current workaround is to use a different tool number for the different ops and edit the .nc file after posting to set all the ops to the same tool number. To complicate this is the fact that the post creates unnecessary tool changes as it thinks the tool numbers are different. For now I'm editing out the M6 tool change.
Related; For "dummy" tool numbers above, it would be nice to use a tool number out of the Centroid range (>200), like perhaps adding 1000 to the dummy tool numbers. This would make them easy to spot/search for in the .nc file. This is currently not possible as the 200 max tool number is hard coded in the post. Would it be difficult to have the >200 tool number check selectable as optional?
