Not that specific one but other head/head machines.  It is possible.  I used reference points for my pre-positioning.  It was a little more work but it gets around the auto output when tools are not set properly.  I found myself smacking overtravels all the time.  Unless you are really confident in your post editing I would buy a post - and I am very confident in my ability to hack a post.

My first choice would be to see if Colin Gilchrist is available to work it up for you because I know him.  If not I'd buy Postability.

Not a Fidia specifically, but plenty of 5X Head/Head Gantry Machines. What controller does it have?
