ok, back again,

i think we can use your M3.m1s macro for the Job:

copy this code to macro before the dospinCW()


   
   pierceHeight = 0.5 'enter here a value for wanted pierceheiht


   code "F30"
   code "G31 Z-1"
   While Ismoving()
   Wend

   code "G00 Z" & GetVar(2002) 'go back to the  probepoint
   While Ismoving()
   Wend

   code "G91 Z-" & pierceHeight
   While Ismoving()
   Wend

   code "G92 Z0"
   While Ismoving()
   Wend

   Code "G90"

anything is possible, just try it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

I think I may have changed a setting in MACH that I shouldn’t have, I reset Mach and it worked!

Hooked my PROMA back up, I’m back to where I was before I decided to add a floating head, the THC is working correctly, but seems to lose it Z after the first pierce.. it’s still diving itself into the material. (Just lost a limit switch.. RIP. good thing I ordered5)

My work offset Z is stuck at 1.7477. I can reset, ZERO, and it keeps jumping back to 1.7477

So, with my THC atttached, after it probes for z, it goes back up to where the probe started, then it dives down instead of going up to my pierce height..?
