Title: Connect 2 toolsetters? 1 fixed and 1 to set workpiece height
Post by: stephanisk on August 13, 2017, 05:12:39 PM

Is it possible in mach3 to connect 2 different tool height setters? I want to set one tool height setters fixed on my tablebed and use another tool height setter to find the height of the workpiece.

I would program a macro to calculate the height difference after a tool change so that after a tool change I can just use the fixed tool height setter to zero out the new tool in comparison to the previous tool.

I can find the probe settings in mach3. So the moveable toolsetter is not the problem to connect. It is the fixed on I am looking to connect.

Any help on this? Anybody wrote a macro like this already?
