X & Y tool offsets ???
« on: April 25, 2011, 08:34:07 PM »
I have a router with 4 heads and 2 drill spindles.
Each router head is 12" apart. I have been coding in the offset for the different heads with mastercam.
It's a pain in the neck tohave to go in and set that parameter everytime and if you forget well then yyour part gets messed up.

My question is is there away to set an x & Y offset for T2, T3, T4, T5, etc...

I know I can set the Z offset but I need to set the X & Y also. How can I do the in Mach3? I want to be able to do it with work offset 1, G54.

I've seen someone else use a macro pump to check the current tool, and use G52 to set the appropriate offset for that tool.
