    So maybe I should start a new thread for this, but I'm curious - when changing tools in a CNC mill, how do you know/measure the tool length/position? I did a quick google search the other day and I didn't see anything that mentioned it.

    Long story short, having fun following a 3D printing build where the guy talks about tool changing and is building it so that he can do just that, but I feel like he might not be taking all prior knowledge on the matter into consideration.

    You set offset values into the control for each tool number so it knows how to compensate the machine. You can set the values manually or via a tool touch/probe.

    I suspect a tool change on a 3D printer might be quite a bit more difficult, unless I'm missing something.

    Edit: When you put the tool in the spindle you set the length. Missed the "set length" bit.

    Simon, new skin looks great.

    Somewhat on topic, but spurred by Simon's comment about Mike Wood being the pioneer of spool valves in paintball. Did the novas pre-date the automag? I don't know the time line of things like the equalizer either. So, is the nova really the 1st spool?

  9. #2319
    The Automag was before the Nova but I am not sure I class it as a spool valve in the same way as I would the Nova.

    yeah i think the "first spool" really depends on your definition of what a spool valve is.
