    Default Brother A00 macro variables

    I'm looking to use macro language to do some probing on my Brother TC-31A. It has the A00 control. I am not able to figure out how to get the system variables into macro variables. I need to know how to store the current position, work offset data, tool offset data, etc. into macro codes. I saw another forum which described macros for newer brother machines in which for example the G54 X position is stored in variable #5201. I tried those codes on my machine by setting for example #100=#5201 but the machine just gives an error. I tried all kinds of numbers of course, no luck with anything except the user assignable variable numbers. I can store say the number 1.00 in #100, then set #101=#100 and it will copy the value 1.00 to #101. It doesnt make any sense that they bothered putting in a G131 skip feed option, but no way to store the machine's position using macros? Anyone have experience on the A00 control running macros?

    Hi,
    I am not an expert with this control but what if you store your positions or any other variables independently of the actual machine position during NC processing?
    lets say something like this:

    G0 X10 Y20 Z30
    #100=10
    #101=20
    #102=30

    After that you can reuse the stored variables for your needs
