Fanuc post processor edit to output G53 X0. Y0. after the G53 G00 Z0 line

I was hoping i could get some help/be pointed in the right direction with something I am trying to add into  my Fanuc post Processor. I have basic post processor editing capabilities at best. I am trying to get my Fanuc post processor to output G53 X0. Y0. after the G53 G00 Z0 line (for a safe tool change position) any suggestions as to the best route to go would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thanks 👍

Hi @Nathan_at_Doughty ,

 

Add following if condition in function onSection.

    // retract to safe plane
    writeRetract(Z); // retract

    if ((insertToolCall && !isFirstSection())) {
      writeRetract(X, Y);
    }

 

Save the post modification and test the code.

 

Thanks,

Hi, 

 

I have posted the code into my post processor, I believe I have done it correctly, but it is posting the retract X and Y movements via a G28 code rather than a G53? I have attached a picture. maybe you can see where I have gone wrong? 

many thanks.Screenshot 2023-07-04 150353.png

You need to set your Retract option to G53 (default is G28), this is the Post Properties at posting time
