Hi Colin,

Config. Fixtures... are where the Work Offsets are defined.
Config. Tool Table... is where the Tool information is defined.

The data entered is then stored in the <profile> .xml file when Mach3 is closed.

PEACE

I think they can only be updated within a running Mach3.

I've used both the import and export macros in that link successfully.
