Using offsets for a lathe
« on: December 05, 2010, 04:18:07 PM »

I am using Mach3Turn for a lathe attachment that I built.

I would like to know if Mach3 can do this:

Call a tool with T command
Move the tool to a start position that I set with the tool offsets
Start machining from that point
Return to machine home position or go to another tool

Thanks for any help

Have a look at Appendix F anf G in the LazyTurn Manual which can be found in Members Docs.
It talks and walks you thru the steps to do what you want.
