Problem: Work offset G54 Z0 shows some "weird number" which is very hard to relate to.
Can we make top of fixture show Z0=0.000 ?
- Go To Setting 33 (coordinate system) and Set it to HAAS. This will prevent G52 from clearing upon RESET or machine powerup and so on. (note: normal probing routines will require this setting to be Fanuk only).
- Find actual Z0 offset of your fixture and enter it into G52.
Thats it, from now on the value you enter into your G54-G59 Z is actual distance from top of your fixture to the top of programmed part.
Note: AGAIN this solution will not work with any of the probing software. The workaround for that will be posted later.
