    Tool length offset macro

    Hello all. I searched the forums and found a few threads for tool setting macro for the length but thought it would be easier to post a thread.
    What i want is a macro so all i have to do is pick up my tool, enter an M code and it enters the machine number in the tool offset page.
    This is for a fanuc series o-i M control
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It is possible with probes. Contact Renishaw or some other probe-manufacturing company.
