You CAN set the point of rotation with a G68 call. I will Check the wizard to see what it is doing.

With the Wizard you don't tell Mach anything it records the point you are currently located at.  then when you move to the second point it does the same thing.

After the rotation is set then you would move to a known point and set that as the reference point.


NOW NOTE: The 2 reference marks on the part must be on the same plane as each other  OR you would have to add in that offset angle.  But normally lineup marks are created on the same plane to make things easy.

OK I just checked the Code for the SetRotation Wizard. It does NOT set the poijnt of rotation ONLY the rotion angle.

So you would have to go back and set a referrence point.

Now it is possible to modify the wizard to include the Reference point(first set point) as the point of rotation. AND 2 more Dros to input the correct values. That would allow it to set the reference point in MACH and rotate on that point.
