I have a K2 CNC Need Help Setting up
« on: January 07, 2010, 03:58:42 AM »
I have the tool Hit Indicator and need to understand how to connect this to Mach3.  I know it's nothing less or more than a micro switch in a controlled height block with a spring loaded indicator pad.  Can this be set up as a Probe in Mach3?  Right now it's wired into my controller on Pin 13 so I think it could work like a limit but not to convenient.  any information would be appreciated.

Yes you will assign it to the Probe input. Do a search for tool height macro or similar as there is loads of info on the macros used.
