Workplace coordinates and the object model

  • I am using workplace coordinates to probe a workpiece and then calculate the actual tool offset. I am doing so by recording the values in the Z coordinate starting at 9 (G10 L2 P9 - G59.3) and working backwards. I then recall them from the object model, carry out some simple math and come back with the tool offset.
    The workplace coordinates available start at 1 (G54) up to 9 (G59.3).
    The object model starts at 0 and goes to 8 so unless you remember that its stored with an offset of -1, it can get confusing fast.
    Is there any way that this can be reviewed to make the object model match the numbering used for the coordinate system?

    I have moved this to the firmware wishlist.
