Zero Z axis in the middle of gcode
« on: March 13, 2015, 03:41:40 PM »

I am trying to figure out the best way, after an M0 (pause program) to jog my router to a new location and zero the Z-axis. Is there a button that would let me jog to this new location and zero, without losing where I was in the gcode? I'm not wanting to edit the gcode, I just want to change tools and zero the machine at a reference point.
Thanks for the help!

I have my M6 macro auto zero the new tool automatically during the tool change. That's the best way.
