    Mach 3 Switching Offsets

    Pretty much a beginner. So pardon me if this is a "duh" question.
    Running Mach 3 on a CNC6040 and want to have it move from
    one offset to another and run the same file again at the next
    (G54 - G55 -G56 etc)
    Can this be done with a macro?
    Or is it something already in the "wizard" stuff?
