Tool length compensation

H‌i,

Is there anyway to add tool compensation in Creo NC? I use a 4 axis rotary table machine for a trajectory milling. I am getting values of Z incremented at every step which has to be calculated only from start point.

This is odd, the only place where you can have incremental output is for 4-Axis milling the rotation of the turn table - and this is optional, you can set it to absolute as well (see picture). All other output is always in absolute coordinates.
