I didn't make any progress. Beginning of the year I made the decision to just go all-in and purchase a professional VMC with Siemens control and haven't looked back. :) 

Still want to complete my Linux system one day because it can be interesting to upgrade an older VMC to Linux as a support machine. But for now just busy making chips 7 days a week

Back to the Problem that is not solved for years ! ( that's what it looks like )

SetUp : Mill
x-axis : 410 mmy-axis : 520 mmz-axis : 110 mm
home at : x0 y520 z110 ( left back top )

SetUp : ATC-Spindel
put air-pressure        : drop_tool;
release air-pressure : pull_tool;

SetUp : Tool-Changer
Horizontal rack along x-axis at y520 with n-positions;

SetUp : Tool-Length-Sensor :
Tool-change Position at x385 y380 z110;
Trigger at x385 y380 z41.4145;

For the tool-change with PB I have 4 CASE plus some subCASE for each :
CASE_1.) change tool in auto-mode with G-Code in program :  T5 M6 G43
CASE_2.)  change tool in mdi-mode with G_Code in command-line : T5 M6 G43
CASE_3.)  change tool by insert new tool-number (5) in PB and press button( M6 G43)
CASE_4.)  change tool by hand at G30 ( and do, or do not touch-off ) 

So where do I get started 
 


I see you have a Sorotec machine. What I did is buy the Sorotec ATC macro for EdingCNC. This works 100% perfect with all the features you want. My plan was to convert this to Linux which should be fairly straight forward, just a matter of remapping the variables and commands to control various inputs and outputs. If you bought the machine from them you can get the macro for around €100 I believe.

@P1-Engineering

May I ask where you are located ?

About the macros : I'm at LinuxCNC & EtherCAT
Since I'm at it I want a setup for the ATC-rack and TLS with Probe-Basic as the GUI;

maybe start by reading
linuxcnc.org/docs/2.9/html/remap/remap.html

And see the INI entries mentioned over at
forum.linuxcnc.org/qtpyvcp/48401-py3-pro...version-doc-lcnc-2-9
where there are a bunch of commented out lines (#) that are uncommented if you wish to use the probe basic carrousel style ATC tab and included subroutines

but to build a Rack / linear ATC you will want to ignore the existing bits in PB and the above config and build you own M6 remap
a few example of a rack m6 remap have already been pointed out
and I found this one too github.com/GuiHue/myfenjalinuxcnc/blob/m...cros/rack_change.ngc

based on
"home at : x0 y520 z110 ( left back top )"

you seem to have your machine Z0 at the bottom of the travel (bed height) and the axis going positive from there,
most have Z0 at the top of the travel and going negative towards the bed

lot of existing examples code with be expecting Zo at the top, where a move to Z0 is consider safe (by moving tool all the way up)
