Dear pro/gurus,
I am back again and I need your help.



For the notorious post I develop ( Mori Seiki 5 axis )
I pray for every tool change to have printed a line before with the tool
description.



C.l file

LOADTL / 6

Hi George,

you have to setup a PPRINT table in order to export in the APT file, PPRINT
statemetns on "tool_name, tool_position_number, tool_comments,
tool_parameters, tool_offset_number". Everytime you have a "LOADTL"
statement, there is a PPRINT on the latter parameters.
then you have to develop a FIL subroutine in order to be triggered ON in
such a case.
I think I had somewhere some samples/examples of code for these kind of
jobs, but I'm missing them.
If anyone has the advanced guide (a powerpoint I think) of FIL coding,
please share it with us.

I think there is something like that in the GPOST central page (PTC
documentation/Knowledge base)
Check it out...
