I'm wondering if Mach 3 can compare the current homing location to previous homing locations in order to see how many steps were lost since the last homing?

The idea:

The mill homes using the home switches (trip, and then untrip slowly) and finds out where it is in space.

Then you run a part.

If you then home again, Mach 3 should know where home SHOULD be. Is there a display view or program that will show you the difference of where home should be, and where Mach 3 finds it? It would be an easy way to find out if you are losing steps.

I've checked the manual, and googled around a bit, but didn't find anything.

I found out that the button I'm looking for is "verify" on the MDI screen....
