Simulate PROBE w/Keyboard HOTKEY
« on: January 27, 2018, 09:04:52 PM »
Hi, Can the probe input to mach4 Hobby Mill (or Lathe) be simulated with a keyboard hotkey ?

Thanks,
Russ

Hi,
no I don't think so. I tried a while back without success. You can cause the Machs Probe input to operate with a keyboard input but its your motion controller
that does the majority of the probing function.

Even if Machs PROBE input goes active low it doesn't tell your motion controller to stop and report back to Mach the position at probe strike.
