If you are at a position and you would like to call that zero (Or any other point) just type into the dro and press enter. That will set the current fixture offset to the position that you typed in.

Hi Gang,  I too have a question on offsets.  I was drilling some parts with two tools, center drill, and drill.  I set the zero to the top of the part.  I set the center drill  for tool 11 then set tool 12 drill to top of part.  The center drill was fine. The drill blasted through the part and then went into the feed.  Fortunately, I had the feed override turned down.  I went back and reset the tools with the drill first, then the center drill.  This time the center drill stopped way above the part and the drill was fine.  This was done over and over.  tThe tool offset light went off  and then on when done setting the offset.
Used version 2.0.055.

Thanks,
Roy

You need to have a master tool to set the fixture offset from. That also will be what all your tool lengths are based from. Have a look in the manual at the offsets and I think that will help you.

If you have problems please post

Thanks
