Apologies in advance if my question has already been discussed in another thread.
I use mostly Heidenhain and all the programs have individual Datum Shifts in them. They very often have INCREMENTAL DATUM SHIFTS as well. These are contained within labels to allow reading back and forth. This system works very well for what we want.
We have a couple of Haas VF3 and use one of the 26 x available work co-ordinate areas to store the Datums. Currently, if I want another datum in the program I use another area etc.
My question is:
Is there a simple way to use the same procedure as the Heidenhain, ie Incremental Datum Shift, within my programs without having to use one of the 26 x co-ordinates? I will still want to swap around and read these values as and when.
I want to be able to read my main datums then incremental values several times within the job.
