Rack Tool Change Demo - Where are Pocket Coordinates found ?

I have been messing around with some of the remap examples and was wondering where the coordinates are located for each tool? I see the tool table but they only display the tool number, pocket number, Z axis value, and bit diameter. I cant seem to find the X and Y axis. Where would it be pulling it from ?

Not sure about this as I've never used it but have you had a look at these values in 'racktoolchange.ini'? Kind of seems to me that you set up an increment from one tool to the next:

accessible in interp as #<_[section]name>
[TOOL_HOLDER_CLEAR]
X = 10
Y = 30
Z = 10

[TOOL_SLOT_DELTA]
X = 0
Y = 10
Z = 0

# this is not named TOOL_CHANGE_POSITION ón purpose - canon uses it and will
# interfere
[CHANGE_POSITION]
X = 10
Y = 10
Z = 10

You know I did see those settings but it was after a long day at work and for some reason, at the time, I could not connect the two together. Waking up this morning with a fresh set of eyes I cant believe I looked over it.

Thanks for the link as well !

If I may add: I worked out a rack tool change in this repository:
github.com/GuiHue/myfenjalinuxcnc/
Specifically:
TS macro:
github.com/GuiHue/myfenjalinuxcnc/blob/m...cros/rack_change.ngc
Ini:
github.com/GuiHue/myfenjalinuxcnc/blob/master/groot.ini
(Note: tool measurement uses probe_screen)
This video explains the process:
(slightly dated)

Hope it helps.
