REFERENCE MACHINE COORDINATE FROM WORK POSITION "0"
« on: September 14, 2013, 10:34:57 AM »
I want to go to, say, x13 y17 z-2(machine coordinate) from a current job that is at job position of x0 y0 z0 (machine coordinate x30 y12 z-1).  How do I  reference it in my
Gcode???  I may be at any job of 0.0 depending on the job.. I could go to home 0.0.0, but for speed I would like to move from where I am...

G53 X13 Y17 Z-2 But for safety reasons I would do the move in 2 parts. Just make sure you have a clear path . ou may even want to consider a move UP to machine Z Zero, IF you refhome to Z top of stroke, for clearance height .

G53 X13 Y17
G53 Z-2

Thanks, I knew one of the codes could probably do it.  I'll give it a try....
