  • saving tool paths

    Just bought the piranha and v carve bundle.when i try to save tool paths it tells me that the post processor is not compatible with tool changes. Would some one tell me what I am doing wrong or where to look for answers. Thanks Kenny

    Hi Kenny - I suspect you do not have the correct post processor selected, and you have multiple toolpaths selected where some of them use different bits. Whatever post processor you do have selected supports a cnc machine with a tool changer. Be sure to select a post processor that has 'CNCShark-' in the name.

    If a 'CNCShark-' post processor is selected, and you have selected multiple toolpaths that use different bits, you will be warned about this and it won't write the tap file. You can select multiple toolpaths, but they must all use the same tool/bit.
