    Fusion 360 post with tool change request


    Could someone with the pro version of fusion 360 post some script with a manual tool change in it?

    I have the free version that does no allow even manual tool changes to be posted as singe program so I would like to edit the different programs together and incorporate a manual tool change. I am very new to g code and I think it would help me to see how the fusion Milltronics post processor handles manual tool changes.



    My control is centurion 6.

    I would still like to see what a stock tool change command looks like so I know what to tell the program to insert.

    Thanks again pastaman!
