ok, we have the following things in the laser Parameters aeria:
laser raw value-> witch is the value comming from the analog Input (DRO 1000 regardin to the UC300 Manual)

multiplicator -> is the multiplicator to get mm from the raw value

actvalue -> is laser raw value * multiplicator

setpoint (the left one) -> is a known height whre you can "calibrate" the laser to your bed by putting the
laser to this known height an press the "set" button

act value with Offset -> is the result of all

setpoint (the right one) -> is just 1000.0 - setpoint (the left one) 

the main calculation is (see code for macropump):

        actmm = laser raw value * multiplicator
   act value with Offset = 1000.0 - actmm - Offset

i had to use this 1000.0 minus something, because the raw value will be bigger on a deep Point of your
bed then on a high Point.

so i had to reverse the measurement.

hope i could explain the idea in my bad englisch.

btw, after the laser is giving an voltage to the analog Input, the value in Parameter -> laser raw value should Change.

Got it --I think!
I have made the macropump.m1s in vb editor, there is just your code in that file, or should there be other code?


no no other code is needed.
you have to make sure,that macrupump is enabled in config -> General config.
if not enable it and restart mach.

is a thread about the same Situation.

what is your Setup in:

Config -> General Config -> Tool Change ?

did you look in M6Start and in M6End macro file for any code ?

how do you handle tool Change ?

because the first line in your GCode is a tool Change:

N120 T120 M06 ( 3/8 FLAT ENDMILL)
