Work offsets

Are you able to set specific work offsets with the x-carve for repeatable production setups and for setting a vise on the bed?

The controller can save offsets in G54 through G59 coordinate systems. Are you trying to use the home switches with a saved coordinate system to reference a fixture from a previous session?

That’s perfect!

Yes, I will be thermoforming plastic parts and was hoping to use the X-Carve to do trimming and other features such as interpolated holes and engraving. These parts will be held in a custom fixture, so the ability to set the fixture to it’s own work offset means I can clamp different fixtures for different models.

It’s possible I would use the machine for machining the thermoforming molds as well, but we’ll have to see how it handles aluminum first. Looks promising though.

Thanks for the response.
