How to use a lathe gang fixture with turbo cnc? how about tool offset? when tools are changed are the axis zeroed?
What is the easiest way to use it without special cam software?

TCNC has its own tool library. You can set offsets on all axis if you want. So gang tooling is no problem as far as I can see. When you change tools it compansates for the length and position of the tool.
