can any one help me with what this means M244 any help greatly apreciated
Never seen it. I thought anything over M99 was user written.
It might help if you indicate what machine/control you are running.
thermwood 45 useing profilelab 3D
Think it is a user defined one.
USER DEFINED M-CODES
New macros can be written using an external editor program like Notepad and saved in the Macros folder.
An M244 macro on a Thermwood 3 axis machine (such as a CS45) is related to tool changes - in this case putting the previous tool away in the Bar-style tool changer at the rear of the table and then picking up the newly called tool from the "at the head" Typewriter tool changer.
The M244 macro is called by the tool management system (invoke by the PLC) and is NEVER called directly from a NC program.
If you have further questions, I am sure that the folks at Thermwood would be happy to assist you.
Hope this helps.
that would make sense thanks
