Finding top of a work piece using touch plate

By using G38.2 command MASSO can be used to easily and accurately find the top of the work piece, more details can be found on this link: https://masso.com.au/docs/masso-cnc-controller-documentation/touch-probes-plates/touch-plate/

Is there a way to make this a button or a macro?

 

Load this code

  • G38.2 Z-20 F200
  • G92 Z20
  • G0 Z50
  • M30

into a file named autoload1.nc located in the root directory of your USB stick. Adjust Z values to suit your machine.

Then setup a pushbutton on an input and select Autoload GCode-1 Input for that input and you're in business.

See 12.6.Auto Loading G-code

Thanks Arie,

After staring at it all day that was the conclusion I'd come too.

It would still be nice to have a button on the screen, not a physical button.

Take a look at What do we want to the included in Probe Menu

When that feature is implemented the above solution will be redundant.

In the meantime I will continue using the pushbutton.
