Hi Art. Would it be possible, before the lockdown, to add a protect (or
read only) field in the fixture table ?
This is because it is sometimes desirable to lock a fixture entry.
For example, i'm using offset entry G59P253 for tool height
referencing. This offset correspond to Z=0 when my reference tool is
touching the top of the XY table.
I'm calling this offset entry when i need to set a G43 offset for a new
tool, so that i don't need to touch with my reference tool. (only
possible if the machine has been refed).
So it would be nice if we could lock those important entries, to avoid
I've found that most tool crashes are due to offset mistakes. So it's
one of those small details who can help greatly to reduce tool breaking
and table drilling.
