Verify axis

Verify axis in Mach3 2.004

Is there a way to verify the axis without having to clear the tool length offset first.
Because if you don’t clear the tool offset first and the Z is at the home position, the Z move in the plus direction the amount of the tool length offset, which causes the machine to crash in the end of the travel bypassing the zero switch.

You can turn on Z inhibit, this will stop the Z axis moving.

After test run you should then do a zero return of the Z axis before you do any cutting,

The point of verifying the axis is to check if you are still at home, or of you lost any steps.
Z inhibit the z axis would not check any think on the Z.

Maybe Art can look at the code to see if the tool length can be ignored.
Thought  Is that button in VB script??
