that axcacly discribes a flowting head.

get a Switch monted and connected, the we will go throug the code.
should be no big deal.

Yep, thats it,

the switch is nOT connected to z-min etc it is a separate switch connected direct to the "Probe" input on mach3.

just make sure that the Switch of the Floating head 'switches' the probe input

1st thing is to get the switch to show up in diagnostic screen on "probe" or "digitise" input.



Edit

beat me to it ;)

I have my switch lighting up the “digitize” led in the diagnostic screen when the limit switch is active!
