G35 Automatic Tool Diameter Measurement (Group 00)
(This G-code is optional and requires a probe)
F Feedrate in inches (mm) per minute D Tool diameter offset number X Optional X-axis command Y Optional Y-axis command
Automatic Tool Diameter Offset Measurement function (G35) is used to set the tool diameter (or radius) using two passes of the probe; one on each side of the tool. The first point is set with a G31 block using an M75, and the second point is set with the G35 block. The distance between these two points is set into the selected (non-zero) Dnnn offset. Setting 63 (Tool Probe Width) is used to reduce the measurement of the tool by the width of the tool probe.
This G-code moves the axes to the programmed position. The specified move is started and continues until the position is reached or the probe sends a signal (skip signal).
Also see G31.
Use the assigned M-code (M52) to turn the table probe on.
Use the assigned M-code (M62) to turn the table probe off.
Also see M75, M78, and M79.
Do not use Cutter Compensation with a G35.
Turn on the spindle in reverse (M04), for a right handed cutter.
