Thank you, i will look into it today.Tomorrow i will leave for at least 6 weeks (off-shore work) so if i cannot comment today.... i will get back to it when i return.

thanx a lot for your offer, this forum really works great because of the friendly people here. Do you speak chinese ? i just looked into it (first glance) and i really do not understand how somebody could understand it, if you don't speak/read chinese.

By any chance Tweakie, is it possible for you to "tweak"  the script you gave me ? lowering the Z speed 50 it makes contact with the probe, then the DRO should show 19.4 and nothing further on. Z stays in that position, end of action.

Thanx in advance

I meant off-course the only one at XHC. The real tech department there are not able to speak or write in english, and to be honest.... my chinese is quite rusty

Thanx very much. I had some mailcontact with alex before. he is about the only one who is capable and willing in helping and is able to write in English.

If it is something that is due to XHC i will use the probe, only to make contact and stop it there manually. From there on i will evertything by hand.

Thanx very much

I can live with it if the Z axis goes down. Stops on contact. If possible telling me it's 19.4 mm, doing nothing else. What values should i change in the file??

Yip, i ran the file several times now, sonwthing seems to be wrong, not with the file, but with the system itself. I did a few runs, what i noticed:

first time z went down, touched, went up and hovered about 5mm above the contact
second time Z went down....... hovered about 8 mm telling me it was 29.5 (so nearly perfect
third time Z went down, touched, and went down deeper, offcourse i stopped it

So i am lost in space now. Everything else runs perfect, only this function goes sour.

Muy fantasico, thanx a lot .

It work a lot better, not correct yet, but now it must be a matter of details.

Z goes down after dwelling. Hits the probe, goes a bit up, comes down and hoovers above the probe at about 5 mm height stating Z axe is zerod and showing 10.0005 at the DRO (it should say 29.4 if it was 10 mm above the probe)

After installing the mach3 older verison  i copied the xml file, the licence file and the screens like the 1024
