G53 commands are only good for that specific line, unlike G54-59 which are modal ( I believe that is the correct terminology). As long as you always specify your coordinate system a...

Re: Confused

Ken, A couple of ways you can figure this out. Look at the last couple lines in your toolpath file and look to see if G53 or G54 are there. If so, then that is where you are changing work coordinates from G55. Another way is to go in to the MDI tab right after the file finishes running and it will t...
