all those "probing" macros will work, no question,
but the Point is the accuracy you whant to have?

but this is a complete other discussion and offtopic here.
anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

'Note that there are also, FRENCH and ITALIAN probing macros (posted in this forum) that DO NOT use those legacy setvar() and getvar() functions.

GetVAR() is not a "legacy" function. It's the proper and only accurate way to read the trip point. And the majority of chinese controllers do not support it's use.

It is perhaps as Craig has been saying all along, in many other postings - if you want accurate and reliable machining / probing / etc. then forget the cheap Chinese controllers.

i will leave the screensets for a while,,,,,,,with my normal setup i have added the big tex m6 strart macro,,,,at least now i have the spindle move to the fixed plate location where i can change the tool and use the auto toll zero function,,,then continue with the cut. when i get more time i will sort a new controller,,, has anyone tried the " AXBB-E ethernet motion controller and breakout board combined controller " from the company behind of uccnc .

EVERY function is in the "legacy" list.

I have one, but have not tried it with Mach3. I bought it for use with UCCNC.
