Phill

I have now tested the script I suggested.

It works perfect on LPT and SmoothStepper.

So the line that I was not sure about syntax, is good.

PlateThickness = 3.0 + GetUserDRO(1151) 'Set touch plate thickness here and it will add the material thickness from the onscreen DRO

Hi Greolt,

I have just tested the script it does exactly what i want.  ;D

It seems explaining what you want is harder than the actual coding.  ::)

Thanks also to Brett "Chaoticone" for your kind offer via PM and help thus far but Greolt just beat you to it.

This came about as i am engineering rather than routing and i cannot always get my touch plate in a position to get a Touch

So i touch off on another face and either add or subtract to get me back to where my datum is.

I did not want the zero tool thickness coming into the equation "Outside Of The Script" as a mistake can have disastrous consequences IE i wanted that thickness left hard coded where it would always be correct.

I think i may change the title to reflect what i consider a usefull addition to the Auto Tool Zero Script.
