Default question on wincnc set up

Is it possible to repeat a program at new x0y0 coordinates after the file is ran without shutting the machine off. I would like to cut multiple pieces without stopping and resetting.

Thanks

Sure thing

Run file at first location
move to second location (or set as stored home position)
Zero XY
Run file
move to third
zero Xy
Run file
Rinse and repeat

To revert back to machine coordinates type G92 XY press enter

IF you do this often look into the L10 Array function

Thanks Gary. That is what I was thinking after reading through the manual. I wondered if I could use the L code to preset the XY starting points for multiple runs. My file only runs about seven minutes and it would be nice to set up three or four to run back to back.
