Mach4 General Discussion / Help porting Mach3 script to Mach4
« on: December 14, 2014, 10:06:41 PM »
I have been using the following auto tool zero script in Mach3 and I would like to port it over to Mach4. Any help would be appreciated.


If GetOemLed (825)=0 Then 'Check to see if the probe is already grounded or faulty
    DoOEMButton (1010) 'zero the Z axis so the probe move will start from here
    Code "G4 P1" ' this delay gives me time to get from computer to hold probe in place
    Code "G31Z-2 F2" 'probing move, can set the feed rate here as well as how far to move
    While IsMoving() 'wait while it happens
    ZProbePos = GetVar(2002) 'get the axact point the probe was hit
    Code "G0 Z" &ZProbePos 'go back to that point, always a very small amount of overrun
    While IsMoving ()
    Call SetDro (2, .0627) 'set the Z axis DRO to whatever is set as plate thickness
    Code "G4 P0.25" 'Pause for Dro to update.
    Code "G0 Z1" 'put the Z retract height you want here
    Code "(Z axis is now zeroed)" 'puts this message in the status bar
    Code "(Z-Plate is grounded, check connection and try again)" 'this goes in the status bar if aplicable
    Exit Sub
End If
