Preparing a workspace
#1
Hi everybody.
When preparing a workspace in my harmchair, far away of the milling machine, what zero must I set for this workspace ?
I mean : I prepare the wokspace with the points I need, then go to the milling machine, place the tool where I want the origins to be, and then set the workspace origin on TouchDRO ?
Regards

Thierry,
This is exactly how it's designed to work. Another way (if there is no obvious origin), you can position a tool over a specific point. Let's say it's x=12mm, y = 32mm. You can then use the "Set Dimension" dialog to set that as the absolute position for X and Y. Just make sure the "Set absolute dimension" is checked in the dialog.

Thank you
Yuriy
