Hi
I'm working on job on the CNC router that will take about 8 hours. I have only a couple of hours available now and then.
I stop the machine and note down the line number, than put the machines three axis in 0 by G0 X0 Y0 Z0, shut off the PC and the control. When I start up again I just verify that the machines axis are all in 0 than load the program, find the correct line and hit Run From Here.
This works perfectly.

Normally when I start up I home the machine, then 0 the axis on the stock.

My question is; can I always just leave the machine in 0 (PC and control off) and start up again without homing just 0 the axis?

Hi,
yes you can. The only thing that won't work are soft-limits. They are in machine co-ords and without being homed the
machine co-ords are undetermined.
