Goto Current Workoffset Input Pin

With one of the last updates an "Input Pin" can now be assigned to a user supplied external "Goto Park Button".  This we have found to be very handy because we set the Park XY values over the Tool Set location.

Similar, I would like to Feature Request a "Goto Current WorkOffset" Input Pin that could be connected to a external Button.  There is a on-screen button on the Program (F2) page, but it is sometime un-handy while doing some tasks, like: Job Setup, Tool Inspection, Tool Replacement, Set Z Zero, or other Jog (F3) tasks.

We would find this new Button very useful on our CNC Router Table!

Thanks for your consideration and efforts.

I guess to be consistent, the Feature Requested Input Pin should be labeled as input for "Go to Work Origin" the same as the Program Screen (F2).

This input pin and a connected button would allow for rapid tasks, like:  Job Setup, Tool Inspection, Tool Replacement, Set Z Zero, or other Jog (F3) tasks.

Thanks for your consideration and efforts.

Are you aware that you can trigger a predefined g-code to run due to toggling an input?

Yes, we use "The Auto Load" feature for for initialization and other pre-run tasks, but when a job has  already been loaded and only a tool check (or other jog task) is needed, a dedicated Physical Button for "Go To Work Origin"  (without switching to another screen) would be VERY useful, just as the "Go To Park" button is very useful.

 

Thanks,
