How can I change the properties of the following dro's so I can write to them from a macro?
X Machine Position
X Fixture Offset
X Offset

X Machine Position

You cannot programmatically set machine coordinates at will.

Don't think DRO properties will help.

Machine coords. = You cannot change. The only way it can be changed is by homing/referencing the axis or moving the axis.

Not sure what you mean by X Fixture offset and X Offset but if they are what I'm thinking you would change their respective # variable and the DROs will reflect that change.
