Hello, I just made a post titled Tool Height Setter use and posted it, site said there was one already.  Didn't see it.  Made Post again and again and got same message.  mHas anyt one seen it yet in this General Mach Discussion?  If not I will try again under a different title.  Note:  It also had a JPG attachment.  Thanks   Ray

Try making the post without the attachment.  If that works, then re-name the attachment, and edit the post to add it.

Ray I just renamed the post, renamed the jpg 2 more times.  I don't know what the heck is happening.  I will send info here with no picture:  I made a tool height setter as from www.cad2gcode and want to use it with Mach3.  Manually.  My setter light comes when tool touches it (3 inches).  Tool is 3/4 inches long from bottom of spindle.  Material is 1/2 inch thick on worktable.  Not sure how to set Mach Z DRO.  Thanks again,  Ray

THis is one that I use. The two lines that adjust for the thickness of my touchpalte are red. The first of the two is where I would change the 0.059 to 3.0 if it were 3 inches thick.  

'Auto Tool Zero Script

CurrentFeed = GetOemDRO(818) 'Get the current feedrate.
PlateThickness =0.059
ProbeFeed = 5


Code "G90 F" &ProbeFeed

If GetOemLed (825)=0 Then
Code "G4 P5000" 'Time to get to the z-plate
Code "G31Z-5 F" &ProbeFeed
Code "G4 P0.25"
While IsMoving()
Sleep(100)
Wend
ZProbePos = GetVar(2002)
Code "G0 Z" &ZProbePos
While IsMoving ()
Sleep(100)
Wend
Call SetDro (2, PlateThickness)
Sleep(100)
Code "G4 P0.5" 'Pause for Dro to update.
Code "G0 Z0.25" 'Change the Z retract height here
Code "(Z axis is now zeroed)"
Code "F" &CurrentFeed
Else
Code "(Z-Plate is grounded, check connection and try again)"
Exit Sub
End If

Thank you Chaoticone.  Isn't that a macro or something used witrh electronic setter connected electrically to the breakout board?  I am using mine manually (NO ELECTRONICS) by handwheel but don't know which numbers to put in the Z DRO.    Ray    PSS  I plan to make it with electronic attachment in near future

Ray, that is indeed a macro. It makes it Automagic. If your touching off manualy you would enter the distances in your axis dro. Just click the z dro and enter the distance and then hit enter.
