    There are no tool offsets in mazatrol programs. All tool lengths and diameter offsets are done in the tool data page.

    .
    .
    usually Tool Data page AND a tool list page
    .
    Mazatrol has a lot of auto settings and recommendations when programming based on tool list which lists
    .
    type of tool (like drill or mill)
    tool dia
    number of flutes
    carbide or hss
    .
    it needs tool list and tool data to make auto programming recommendations like rpm and feed rate based on tool list data and material being machined at top of program
    programming in mazatrol it handles tool length automatically and approach based on programming and tool dia when you program a shape like line left
