For those that chose to USE the plugin to save a few tips  and broken probes please consider sending Scott a FIVE dollar bill as appreciation for all his hard work on this Plugin it was a bit tricky to pull off.

Especially if you are using it in a commercial application and are making money off the use.

Scott is BACK AT SCHOOL so his FREE time is very limited and he does a lot of this from the goodness of his heart.

So please consider a donation to the cause, Cause he is probably broke going back to college at HIS age (;-)


To use the plugin you need of course the PLUGIN and you need to create 2 Mcodes (macros)  1 to turn ON a UserLED() and 1 to turn it OFF. You do not have to put the Uled on screen but it makes it NICE to be able to see IF it is ON or OFF. BUT it is not really neccessary as IF in dought turn it on or off again.

I use M20 to turn it on and M21 to turn it off.

'M20 ,Macro for Protected Move ON
SetUserLed(2001,1)
End

'M21 ,Macro for Protected Move OFF
SetUserLed(2001,0)
End

Now you can use it from Gcode or from the MDI.

You can also create On Screen  Buttons to do the functions

How the Function works is When you turn on the Function the plugin is monitoring MACH3 for several things. It looks to see IF  a G31 is active. IF it is everything is normal. IF it is NOT active and then the probe is tripped MACH3 will issue a STOP command to halt motion on all axis , this will help save the Tip/Probe from damage.
It also works IF you are jogging.

Terry, (and others)....

Here is the link for the "release version" 4.0 
http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,25264.msg178466.html#msg178466

There has been NO change in the code from the last one, OTHER than, I changed the DLL name to: "ProbingProtection.dll".  (instead of the G31_Dectect.dll).

Also on the Config Dialog, the header was changed as above, and the version number was added.  The XML data and all other references to the above name change is also been done.

So, I you want to use the "Official" release, then disable you current G31_detect, close mach3, delete that plugin from the plugin directory. Then double click the "ProbingProtection.m3p" and it will install as usual. Then you will need to re-enable the plugin and redo your ULED choices if they are NOT the defaults.

HIYA Scott it seems to work ok now BUT it does not give you a status message when it trips as to it activated and stopped MACH.

Something such as "Protected Move Mode Activated, Mach3 STOPPED" Hard figure out what happen if there is no status message(;-)

Thanks Scott, (;-) TP
