Touch Probe documentation
« on: May 03, 2018, 07:45:59 AM »
I set up a z probe on Mach 4 and ESS and basically it works but I want to refine the behavior of Mach 4 after the touch. According to the Artsoft video tutorial, there is more detailed information about setting up the touch probe in the documentation, but I am not finding it.  The manuals that I’ve found seem to skip that info.  Can someone guide me to these docs.  For instance I want the probe to back off a set amount after the touch, but messing with the parameters on the touch screen dose not seem to work as I would expect.

Are you using the TouchOff module (accessed by the "Touch" button) or the built in probing in some of the default screens (accessed by the "Probing" tab)?

If using the TouchOff module the docs for it are included in the C:\Mach4Hobby\Docs folder. It is named TouchOffHelp.pdf

;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

Yes, I am using the Touch button so I guess that's the "TouchOff"

OK, yup, that is the TouchOff module. You can also open the doc for it by clicking on Help in the top left corner of the TouchOff UI dialog itself.

I guess as soon as the word got out I had posted the question, all my hardware started behaving.  I did find the docs, but I am going to need to read the one on probing many times to see if I can make sense of it.  It also does not address my questions about the fields on that screen.

I’ll see if I do better on the screen help tomorrow,
