Hi,
do you have a spare input on your controller?

NO

You take a wire from whichever Port and Pin is assigned as 'Probe' in Config. / Ports and Pins. This wire is connected to your 'touch plate'. If your cutting tool is not already connected to GND then you may need an additional wire. You then add a suitable script to the on-screen Auto Tool Zero button.

Hi,
so do you have a spare input you can assign as a probe input?
