it depends on how much Money you whant to spend.

a 1:1 replace would be an UC100 (original no chinese chunk)

other's are (list is not complete and has no ranking)
-smoothstepper
-UC300
-UC400
-hicon
-CSLab

don't think about all this chinese controller's they are cheep but that is the only benefit.

you can try to Play with:

Code: [Select]

  SetProbeActive(bool) // turns the probe ON or off, 1 for on, 0 for off
  SetProbeState(bool) // sets the low-active on or off, 1 for on, 0 for off


never tested thse functions.

parallel port will only run with Win7 32Bit or older.
all newer require a external Motion Controller, not just simple usb to parallel Adapter.

Code: [Select]
Sub Main()
Code "G31 Z-150 F300.0"
While IsMoving()
WEnd
Sleep(200)
SetOEMDro(802, -3.4)
Sleep(200)
Code "G00 Z3.0000"
While IsMoving()
Wend
End Sub

--open Operator -> VB Script Editor
--copy and paste the code into Editor window
--with the >|| button you can run the script line by line (single step) and see what is happening

Setting page -> override limits

158
use the Tab Key and then Switch to continious mode.

159
Config -> Ports&Pins -> Turn Options -> X-Mode may help?

think a easy way would be to write machine coord's int a file (directly after probing code) like:

Code: [Select]

Open "C:\Mach3\probecoords.txt" For Append As #1 ' Open to write file.

'write machine coord's
Write #1,"X: " & GetOEMDro(83) & " Y: " & GetOEMDro(84) & " Z: " & GetOEMDro(85)

Close #1
