Park Feature?
« on: March 28, 2020, 22:39:51 pm »
I want to set up multiple boards on the bed and set separate temporary "zeros" for each of them.  I would like to be able to jump back and forth from each work piece, but I don't want to have to manually zero each piece.  I thought "Park 1" and "Park 2" would provide this feature, but that doesn't work because once you get to the Park position, and then zero, the Park position moves.

Any advice is appreciated!

Hi CKurv

Without knowing why you want to do this, it's a little hard to help.
You could look into nesting or using the G54\55 ect work offsets.

I'm doing epoxy inlay projects, which require multiple cycles of engraving, filling with epoxy, engraving, filling with epoxy.

Most CNCs have fixture offsets and default to G54. They then provide G55 - G59 typically. In MDI call G54. Jog to where you want X Y Z zero and set all axis to zero. Call g55, move to home position and again zero the axis. You can also specify those locations numerically.
