Tool Length measurement

How can I initiate the tool probing from the NC program ?

There’s an option under the Additional tab under Config > Server > Machine Config called Probe Tool on M6, which will measure your tool after a tool change. Is that what you’re looking to do?

After checking that option, click the Restart Services button and then every tool change will trigger a tool probe as well.

Sounds like what I was looking for. Do I have to change the tool to a dummy one first, in order to guarantee the measurement in any NC program - for the case the tool# does not change?

Hmm, that’s a good question. I would have to test that, but I believe it always measures the tool even if the tool is already active.
