Barcode ID labels from tools might get worn out after some time. Your machine will not recognize the tools anymore, although they are mounted in the toolhead.


  1. Go to Options > Tool Configuration.
  2. Click the More button.
  3. Make sure that the option Ignore the automatic tool identification is checked and then click the OK button.
  4. Now you can select whatever tool you like for each position.

Make sure the correct tool is placed in the toolhead as mistakes might cause damage to the machine.
Order a new ID label via Customer Support and deactivate the "Ignore the automatic tool identification" option when a new label is placed on the tool.
