After talking with Carl at Machmotion, this is how we decided the machine should be wired.

X Limit Switch to 1-11
Y Limit Switch to 1-12
Z  Limit Switches (already in series) to 1-13
Z Home Switch to 1-15
Tool change area switch to 2-10
Tool change zero switch to 2-11

X and Y will just use the limits and not hook up homes
Z will have limits on the Z limit input
Z home will be on a seperate input so it can be used as a home to the "machining area"
Tool change area switch can be used in the macro for?? May not need, or may use as a safety or something (will decide this later, but it will be on an input if needed)
Tool change zero will be hooked to an input so that it can be used in the tool change macro to stop the tool change operation and then reverse the travel to finish the tool change and go back to home.

See any issues with this? It all makes good sense to me I think

Thanks

It will work fine I would think, you can do it many ways as said previously but if you have plenty of inputs spare then its fine, if inputs are limited then having limits all sharing makes more sense.
