Probe Protection plugin, re-release version 4.1
« on: August 14, 2013, 01:43:21 AM »
EDIT/Re-release via Poppa Bear 25AUG13:

Here is the Re-Revised "Probe Protected Mode" Plugin. Release Version 4.1

This plugin, will "Cycle Stop" (push the stop button, OEM code 1003), NOT the E-stop button
if the "Digitize" signal goes active AND Mach3 is NOT currently in a "Probing" routine.

You can also pick what User LED that will allow your Macros/screen buttons to turn it's functions ON or OFF.
I left the other User LED (the original one is still there that lights up when Mach is IN a probing routine (G31).
Allowable User LED range is 1000-2255, a value of 2256 is the NOT use value, and it will NEED to be put in,
OR disable the plugin. The "Default" values are: ULED 2000 for "Mach is Probing" detection, and ULED 2001 for
enable or disable this plugins functions.

Here is a simple "Button Script" Macro to turn On/Off the its function:

'Enable/Disable the probing protect function, it assumes your using the Default ULEDs above.

If GetUserLED(2001) Then
SetUserLED(2001,0)
Else
SetUserLED(2001,1)
End If


The plugin dll file is called: "ProbeProtectedMode.mp3", it will auto install the "ProbeProtectedMode.dl"l into your plugins directory.

DISCLAIMER: There is NO warranty, or Guarantee that this wil NOT avoid all conditions that may lead to probe tip damage.
Use at your OWN risk, I assume NO liabilities.
