Recomneded plug in / macro for Auto tool Zero
« on: January 24, 2014, 10:48:25 AM »
I'm looking to auto set my tool heights.

Which plugin or macro do you guys use to auto zero your tool lengths, or should I say which one is best documented for a newbie to understand? ;)

Thanks

Jim

Since nobody answered, I'll give a shameless plug. My 2010 Screenset is pre-configured with a basic auto zero, and another which automatically measures your tools during a tool change. While I designed it for router use, there are quite a few mill users using it as well.

If you just want a macro, there are a few threads at CNC Zone with a lot of info.
