That's kinda where I started but whilst the old limit switch idea is certainly an improvement it's NOT foolproof. For example after it (limit)trips there's nothing to prevent you from then accidentally JOGGING further onto the the object causing the inevitable CRUNCH. But the main downer is that it's not really a viable retrofit. (Can't see folks wanting to dismantle and modify their Renishaws).

ANY ideas on a Transformation matrix where you scan the material then Process the Gcode Z axis to fit the material. ? One controller I have seen has it working . The demo was impressive to say the least.
