Work Offset Parameter Values?
« on: September 05, 2010, 05:42:05 AM »
Hi,  I notice that the Work Offset Parameter numbers are offset by one.  Is this a quirk of my installation or is there updated documentation somewhere? I have looked and searched without success. Thanks, Kit

Not sure what you are meaning, is it when you call G55 then G56 shows or is it the DRO for each axis is off by 1 from what you think it should be?

Hi,  I am writing a value to Parameter Number 5243, which, according to the documentation I have, is Work Offset 2Y. But it appears on the Offsets Page as Work Offset 2Z, and after a G55 the Z axis position reflects the new Y offset. I am only using work offsets 1 and 2 at the moment and I can cope with entering the parameter values I need by offseting the location by one, but it would be reasuring to get to the bottom of this.  Cheers, Kit

Afraid I have never used parameters to change offsets so cant say whether they are correct or not, dont even think I have a list of them :D

It is a error in the book . If you notice where the descriptor "Workoffset values" is it spills over to the next line and it OFFSET the numbers by one line. It was never corrected.
I have a list somewhere BUT it is a VERY VERY long list.

(;-)

Thanks guys, That puts my mind at rest.  Just to clarify, this thread refers to figure 10-1 in the Mach3 Users Guide. As BR549 points out, after parameter number 5220 all parameter numbers are offset by one.
