Hi!
I concerned the problem:
1. I have 3 tools. Each tools changed by TnM6 command, then G43 command. But compensation not worked.
To switch in compensation on the command Hn has to be added. Th code G43Hn worked.
2. I have the lathe with one tool. I use only G43 command and it works (compensation).
What I did not right?

Hi

You probably need to attach your tool.tbl file for a start.
It is possible to have a valid file which does nothing on 1 or more lines
eg
T1 P1;
T2 P2; etc

G43 Hn is only to allow you use another set of offsets, aside from the ones assigned to the tool selected.

So it might work if you do M6 T2 ( where T2 line in tool.tbl is truncated by a comma ) followed by G43 H3
and actually select tool 3's offsets.

What does Axis show in the bottom left, tool selection bar, when you do M6 Tn?
Are they the correct offsets you expected?


regards

I always use M6 TN G43.

G43 without a H-word will apply the offset of the currently installed tool.

Out of interest, in my G-code last night I was having terrible problems with M6 T4 G43, I had to put the G43 on a separate line.
