Hi Twekie
 ive hit a wall trying to set up script for the z touch probe just cant get my head around it . could you possible fill in the blanks on your script ? . touch plate is 40.37mm
 maz z travel is 100mm
i think standoff distance above probe has to be greater than 40.37 mm ? beyond me im afraid .
 any information gladly received

Why should you have hard coded plate thickness?
For portability between different machines/installations, it would be much easier to use value entered in DRO.
For 1024 screen set it is OEMDro 1001 or 1002, and for Big-Tex screen set it is OEMDro 1151

Attached script is from Big-Tex screen set
