I’m pretty new to the world of CNC since the MPCNC is my very first machine. For now, I’ve experimented the very basics, but I would like to go further and doing more complicated stuff.
I’m wondering how you people are dealing with tool changes.
Here is my “problems”:
My CNC is very close to the table, for maximum rigidity. So I cannot remove the bit everywhere I want, it has to be in a specific spot where I have a particular hole that allows me to remove it easily.
So I need the CNC to go there whenever a tool change is needed. But how?
Second issue: Changing the bit and securing it tightly may involve using quite a bit of force. So it is likely that at some point the CNC may lose a few steps. In which case, how to fix this?
I have a lot of other questions on this topic but lets just start with these two ones for now.
I used Estlcam, if this information is relevant.
