One of the main thing when it comes to changing tools is understanding how the tools are numbered.
After that we also should be aware of the correct layout and order of the CNC Routers tools rack.

Alright, guys, In today's video in Router Cam, we're gonna be looking at the two numbers and the layout for the C N C router. But before that, let's have a quick intro first, so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. And we make short and easy to watch problem solving videos. And we also have daily updates. Otherwise we'll get into the programme here. So like I mentioned today's video, we're gonna be looking at the tool numbers and the actual C N C layout. Now, this is a very important step that we have to cover. And, um, I will explain, uh, shortly. Why? So what happens now on our actual layout? We've got our different, uh, points it's going to be using or our tools. So like we know we've got a one mil. Let's say a two mil and a three mil that we're gonna be using, and obviously with our actual scene machine, we are also gonna need those bits because otherwise the cutout is not gonna work correctly. I might want to switch to a tool, and I can't find it. So you wanna make sure the tools that you are having in your actual plug in is also on your machine so your machine can interpret it with the actual G code. And, um, use the correct ones now to see the order of the tools Or, um, which tools you are using you can. With these, uh, ones we've set up, You can simply um What, uh, let's say you select it, then you right, click it so I'm gonna use this outside box first to see and we can right click. We can edit. And then we will, uh, get the settings which we can edit now under the actual name. Sorry. Let's just quickly fix the zooming we can see here. We've got two tool N 01 d one millimetre. So we know. OK, this one is using tool number one. You can hit the drop down menu, see which other ones there is available, or you can click on this little screw. And then, like I mentioned in the intro, you can also see which tools are available. You can access that same menu from this little button here on the right, and yeah, you can add more tools but keep in mind, it is important where it says 21. But the name itself is not the place you should be looking because you can name this anything more important than that. With a tool selected, you will notice here on the right panel. It says tool number, and then it gives you a number. So this one will be accurate to the G code. But the top one is just a relevant name. So if I click on tool number two, you can see that. Just change to 23 and four. Same thing will happen. So this is very important to, uh, just mark Which ones are tool one and which ones are tool two. So we know now, OK, The one millimetre here is the tool. 12 millimetre is the tool. Two and three millimetre is the tool. Three. So now we know over here we've got all three of those. So we've got a one millimetre. If we go it here, we can see with our actual, um, second contour. Sorry. Let's just close that one. And we do that again. Edit. And then we can see we've got the two and then on the last one. If I do the same thing, we've got the let's try that again. Edit Because this one is supposed to be having the three m. So let's just change that. I'm glad that we looked so I just wanna confirm that the first one must be one m. That's correct. And the last one must be three m, and we got three mil. So now we know we've got a one m two mil and three mil. So, uh, we know which ones are which. So we know when we go to our actual C and C machine, we're gonna need a one M two M and a three mil. But now, when it comes to the actual machines layout, then what you wanna do is just head to the right place. So on the far left of your machine, there will be the two bits and they are organised from left to right, so that is quite important. So what you're gonna do then, is you gonna go put in our first tray over here. We're gonna put the tool bit number one and then tool bitt Number 22 bit number three. And so forth depending on how many you've got. Maybe you've got, you know, seven or so tools. If your tray allows for that, and then you want to put them in that order. So when the G code translates it to your machine, it knows, OK, when this, uh, arm comes, it's gonna select tool one from Trade one, then tool two from trade two. So as it works all the tools on the relevant places So that is very important to understand in the programme, what is your tool numbers that you're gonna be using and the order you're gonna be putting them. So if you for instance, let's say, uh, we are using, uh, on the outside or the inside may be 24. So if I edit this and this had to be 24, then it is very important that when we get to the actual set up that you put to four on over there, even if you have nothing in train number two, number three, make sure you have your tool four in tool number four. Otherwise, it's gonna look there for nothing, or it's gonna look there and it's not gonna find anything so just a quick recap again. So in your programme, make sure you know which tools you're using and then put the actual tools in the relevant pockets from left to right on your tool tray on the C N C machine. But yeah, otherwise that is it on the tool layout. And, um, numbers. If we head here to softwaretraining.co.za. You guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover, and you can also isolate your search on the top or right. If you do not, however, find the training videos you're looking for, just simply go. Yeah, request the training video, fill in the mini form and then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise thanks, guys, for watching and cheers.
