Gent's and ladies

I have been using mach for many years but just using the base co-ordinantes without using G54 or G28 commands, I don't see the need to run them on this machine as i don't have multiple setup on the machine and no repeatable tooling for length.

anyway i have switch to a different cam which uses g28 and g54 and i have a lathe setup and mill setup on the same machine.

When i exit and save fixture and reload it now does not remember the position.

Or is it just showing the g53 and not the g54 wcs?

thanks matt

The DROs show G54 by default, G53 is only seen when you have MachineCoOrds button active.
Have a look at General Config page and see if you have persistent offsets and DROs chosen.
