How do I do a tool change?

Post by kristenanne77 » Wed Sep 02, 2020 1:11 pm

I have Shapeoko 2. Universal Gcode Sender . Limit switches for homing installed.

How do you do a tool change for a program that requires a roughing toolpath with a larger bit and then a finishing toolpath with a smaller bit?

Thanks

Output two separate files.

Same concepts as:
