if you are talking about Mach3, a Label with Content File will Show you the filename of loaded program.
i do not know about a possibilty to Show only the first line of gcode, except your create a VBScript witch is
used every time you load a new file, this will only work with a button on Screen, not with Standard menue load file.

if you are talking about Mach3, there is only one probe Input.

ok understand now your machine. in this case it is a "clasic" Manual tool Change.

the sequence would be for example.

at the beginning of a Job you put in lets say Tool1.
then you press a button on your Screen and Tool1 (lenght) will be measured via touch plate.
then you set manualy workpiece Z to Zero at the top of your surface.

now every time your GCode reaches a tool Change (M6Txx) machine will go to a specific Position
, you Change your tool, press start and machine will measure the lenght of new tool and go ahead
with the actual Job.

therefore machine must be referenced (best via reference Switch on each axis), so that machine coordinates
are allways (after each new Startup) the same.this is necessary to be able to drive to the defined tool Change
Position and to the touch plate.

hello Tim,

first of all i am a Little bit "confused", because you are talking about DIY saw and bits. i may depend on my bad bavarian english,
but by a saw i understand somithing to cut with saw blades, but i my be wrong.

if we are talking about "clasic" mill or route with bit's there are a couple of differen way's for the Z Zero hight.

i do not know how you have to Change your bits (some Pictures would be helpful).

ok short description what is possible:
if your Tools can be placed into machine reproduciable (by bitholders) you can work with different tool (T1-T255), here the toollenght
Needs to be measured one time for each tool, and the a G43 Hxx (xx is toolnumber) will set the correct height.

if you have to Change (clamp) tool each time new your tool height setter Comes into the race. with a custom M6 macro you can
measure new tool lenght after each toolchange via your Setting plate.

Sorry habe mich verlesen, wir reden von Ax und Ay.

hyWi = SQR(((CurrentToolDiameter/2)+Ax)*((CurrentToolDiameter/2)+Ay)*2)

sollte passen.

Einfach mal mit extremen Ax zu Ay Unterschieden testen, wenn es nicht passt, muß ich mit nochmal komplett reindenken,
ist zu lange her.

DeltaX und DeltaY sind eh Parameter, und können somit beliebig, auch unterschiedlich sein.

Wenn der Tastrand auf beiden Seiten gleich ist kannst Du den einfach dazuzählen.
