setting 0,0
« on: December 27, 2014, 09:40:01 AM »
I finally got my DRO,s in agreemjent but when I move to a ne location to set 0,0 for a job the Zero key does not work.  What setting do I need to change to allow me to reset the work 0,0 to the new location?

Make sure Machine Coordinates are not turned on.

Machine coordinates when homing gets reset to 0 but the poart does not.  When I move to the position I want to be zero I am not able to with the buttons it's like they are locked out.

I think I just found the problem, Persistent DRO and Persistent  offsets were both checked under general configuration.  After unchecking them I am ab le to reset the DRO's to zero.  Then when I check machine coordinates it showes exactly where I am on the table.

Well part of it anyway.  Now I can reset only if I hit reset then zero the DRO's after homing.  This is strange
