Manual entry for work center offsets to CM?

Hi Rob,

How hard would it be to implement a manual entry method for updating the work-offset, without having to go through two home and a tool-length check loop? If I’ve got a large piece of material that I’ve put down, and I want to just move over and dig into a different area of the material, I just want to move my work-offset in X & Y based on a known value… from the work-piece I just worked on previously.

I could re-run the CAM and offset the work there, but that’s a ham-fisted work around, and doesn’t really save me much as I’m still going to be putting time in going through the two-home-and-a-tool-length-check routine before it starts the job, even if nothing else in the machine has changed.

Any thoughts or efficiency gains you can give me?
