Import Tool Table

Post by XXX » Sun May 29, 2016 8:28 pm

Hi Folks,

Can someone point me in the correct direction on how to "Import Tool Table" please.

I have a LinuxCNC tool table (.tbl) that as I understand should be importable.

Thanks, X

It's not possible to directly import a linuxcnc tool table yet. Only importers for XML and Heekscnc's format have been written.

It should be pretty easy to write a handler for linuxcnc and would be gratefully accepted. Everything should be in the file /Mod/Path/PathScripts/ToolTableEditor.py

Thanks for the response.

As I've shared in the past, I'm the last person you would want tinkering with a program.

But, I have a little time this Holiday weekend so I'll see if I can make myself useful for a change.
(I can't make any promises, wish I could).

Can you attach here one of those .tbl files so we can have a look?

Here is a copy of my tool.tbl, renamed to .txt so as to be able to upload it...

Looking at 0.19 it seems the file mentioned above by sliptonic is gone and there are now two files of interest?
PathToolLibraryEditor.py
PathToolLibraryManager.py
