There's actually a tree, of sorts, that defines coordinate systems on the
CS position is machine zero (calibration on start up)
E0 (setx-sety) is referanced from CS
E1 thru E48 are referenced from E0. If your using E1,,,, and you change E0,
E1 will be changed accordingly. This "can" result in a loud noise as the
axes slam into the limits
I usually (allways) use E0 as load and unload, and E1, and up, as work
offsets. You can use E0 for work (it defaults to it if no offset is called
out) but then you have to add a load-unload move to the end of the program.
