Hi there, can anyone tell me where, mach3 stores the tool height offsets. I'm using tool 1 as the ref tool, tool 2,3,4 etc are obviously all different heights where is this info ?

Just checked an old mach 3 backup, and it's the tools3.dat file in the macro folder for the machine, however it's not a basic text file.

So I guess mach3 doesnít have a tool offset library, like my machine at work iíll check the forum and see If I can find out how it all works

It does, it's just the file format isn't human readable.

All the information is viewable in the tool table within Mach, or I think there may be a program available to view the data outwith mach, but that may just exist in a figment of my imagination!
