Title: G code question
Post by: bansil on January 27, 2017, 03:19:05 PM
I am getting ready to upgrade my trial T2 to full version

I noticed it reverts to G90 and uses machine home as a reference to cut

Is there an option to use G92 for a quick visual start point?

Is there a way to save positions via say G74 and use G77 to get there?

Or

G54->G59 for stored positions

Since I have it working now, I am looking forward to using setup boards

Thanks

If you have home switches it resets machine home, otherwise it uses workpiece home as the start point.

You can save positions and recall them in the Presets menu, either machine or workpiece coordinates.

Internally I am using G92/G90 for different starting points, as you can see from the g-code.
