# Neutral tool geometric offset in Integrex

#### M Code

##### Aluminum
I am wondering if I have a neutral tuning tool (VNMG for example) and use tool probe in Integrex to measure A and B in tool data (tool set as 45 Deg. while measuring). if I wish to run the tool on 0 degree, how do I set the tool in the CAM software should I consider if the tool run with 0 deg. and holder is a neutral that the tip on the insert is my reference in Z while the center of the tip is my reference in X as attached image? should I build the program based on these references? or Integrex probe will consider the nose radius, so it needs to be shifted by the value of nose radius in X reference..

I hope my question is clear ...

or

The Integrex will adjust the tool geometry when B is at 0° so it looks like the RIGHT picture with tool X at edge of radius to angle.

The Integrex will adjust the tool geometry when B is at 0° so it looks like the RIGHT picture with tool X at edge of radius to angle.
So is it ok to assign the tool as 45 Deg. tool, then take the offset using probe while B is 45 deg. so in this situation if I run the tool with B0 the tool X will be at edge of radius to angle as the machine adjusting that?

No need to take the offset while the tool is in 0 deg.

Note that the program will be run on ISO/EIA not by using MAZATROL

Another question: how do Integrex know the value of nose radius? is it through the probe or via the mentioned tool nose radius value in tool data ?

Via the mentioned tool nose radius value in tool data.

means it will use the value to do calculations when B is 0 to be the right picture. Is this applicable while MAZATRAOL programming only or it is including EIA/ISO as well?

Since I got you here, this seems like an only-onna-integrex trick but I have to wonder why ? What does it accomplish ? Related to your nose radius question ....

And the second is sort of similar in weirdness but no R involved, maybe carbidebob will have something to say ..
