Hello to Brian,
I send the XML a while ago and was wandering if You had a chance to look it up?
Also I try to run a tool  measure macro and got the one from Faby (hope is not mad) and put it in the macros,Mach3 profile, but when I try to run it with a cut file Mach just stops for a couple of seconds and goes to cut the next process.it does not  do the tool change. I check the set up in Mach and looks good,the  auto tool  button is check. Any ideas?
Thank You,Marco.

Fabiano,

Did you succeed to make macro working OK? I mean accuracy? If yes, could you, please, pot it here. I would like to try it.

Thank you,

Zoltan

I have to try some changes and then I let you know if it works...

I have no time at all... so I never work on it.

On the measured value error, if you come at the switch at the same feedrate each time, wouldn't it be consistent enough that if you included a 'Switch Error' DRO or hard code that error in the macro so that it could then be subtracted from the new position.

I use a Z zero touch off plate that measures 0.3125" but I have to fool Mach with a value of 0.3040" and it's always on the mark.

Do these switches have a +/- tolerance that may cause the problem?

Just a thought, I've never dealt with one before.
