found this one a minute ago. It passes all the probing work to the Motion Controller. Will give it a try tomorrow.

that's not gonna work either.

If let say my Z-axis is at Z = 2
The touch plate is supposed to be around Z=0

From Z=2 I do a "G1 G31 Z-4"
Z goes down. Once probe is activated (simulated via keyboard but also with probe, for god sake not on the router)
Z does not stop at touch
But Z also does not stop at Z-4 .... it goes on and goes and goes until I hit Reset
If I leave away G31 it goes to Z-4, but does not interupt the while Ismoving loop

Tried the same without the G1, so just "G31 Z-4" same thing....

Any more thoughts ?

OK, thanks a lot...will try G31 (sounds like it makes sense) next time I am at the machine and also try macro. Will post results ;)

Just an idea: Does the interrupting of the probe work in a button script at all ? Or does it only work in a macro ? Unfortunately I am not at the machine at the moment....but maybe someone knows ?

Hi all,
I just converted a shopbot CNC to MACH3. I am on the latest MACH3 version and running a CSMIO /IP as IO/Module.
So far everything works pretty well, except one issue, I am not able to solve.

I have a probe setup. It is active High (Just a simple touch plate which shortcuts via the tool). I have set up the Input for the probe in Input Pins. If I short the probe, I can see the diagnostic LED in the diag screen correctly. So far so good.
Now I added a button with a script to start touching off.

After some calculations of current Z, touch plate thickness and so on I get to move the Z-Axis:
Here is the simplified code:

Code "G1Z-20" (In reality this is a bit more sophisticated but to keep things simple...)
While IsMoving()

The issue I am having, is that Z is ALWAYS moving to -20, no matter if the probe becomes active or not. I can see in the diag screen that the probe becomes active while Z IsMoving, but the While/Wend loop is never interrupted.

Am I missing something ?

I read somewhere that this might be an issue when using the CSMIO.
There is a setting in the CSMIO plugin saying probe protection....no clue what this does

Appreciate any help :-)
Thanks guys !!!
