I looked at the DIN66025 (Gcode) interpreter of the cnc machine controller and G54 is available!
Never used this but it seems like this:
- Code: Select all
will move the zero point of the X axis +30mm.
Good! So I can experiment with it and see if that helps.
I think G54 should work in general.
Alternatively... it seems that I can write a macro (never did this, seems to be written in C#) which sets X=0 and Y=0. And I can add this macro to every position in the G-Code Editor. So I could import the positions (which I previously saved as teach-in points [X/Y coordinates]) then add the "zero X,Y" command right after each G00 movements.
Even better... I could save sub-macros... for example "3mm hole" and add teh "zero x,y" to the beginning of this g-code.
Thanks guys! You're great. The idea with setting the axis to zero seems to be a good workaround. So simple that this did not came into my mind.
Thanks so much!
