Modifying a plugin would require you to have the source code and I am not sure if Brian has released it or not.
Yopu may have more luck with the copycat wizard, I have not tried it but if it doesnt have access to the A B C DROs then you can likely change the button script in the wizard.

Brian is the guy that now writes Mach, he is a bit busy normally ;) If enough people wanted it then I would imagine it would go on the list of things to do but I am not sure it would be high on many peoples list of wants.

Best thing to do would be send a request to andrew@machsupport.com and see if it gets on the list. It may be it is a very easy thing for Brian to modify or it may be it is a very hard thing, only Brian will know.

mail sent


the best for this plug in will

start a new file blank

adjust the position for all axis

click on a button for write all position with the good position

exemple

g0x10y5z8a-5b10z300


after continue to adjsut the axis, write the second line with jcode

etc....


and if you need to insert a line before the line *********, you can use an other button


with this plug in, you can program a arm robot, finger in the noze ^^

after test, copycat is fine, easy to use it

but only 3 axis
