Work offsets saved in an external file?
« on: July 07, 2012, 03:52:30 PM »

Is the work offset table editable in notepad?
Is it a file somewhere?
It seems to be only accessable by running mach.

Thanks allot for the input.

There is a file under mach3/macros/yourprofile/fixtures.dat
i dont know hot to edit a .dat file...

Anyway i dont know how to handle a tool change where the tool position
changes in not only Z by  X and Y as well.

The tool offset table seems to only handle Z value offsets.
Unless you run Mach3 lathe, but i dont feel comfortable with Mach3 lathe.

Much appreciate any input.

fixtures.dat is the work offset table and tools3.dat is the tool table but how you would alter them except from within Mach I dont know.
