Currently we don't have machines with a sub spindle so after we finish turning setup 1 we flip the unfinished part manually, measure Z 0 and continue with the operations from the second setup.

I do this in CAMworks by creating new setup with reverse Z direction.

Problem is that if I look at statistics tab the minimum Z have values that are output for sub spindle.

for example a face operation that has Zmin of 0 and Z max 20 is outputted as Zmin - 100 Zmax -80 when the part has length of 80 mm

and we really need the real minimum Z values for the setup sheets.

Maybe there is some trick that I am missing?
