This is my first post so please be gentle. LOL!
I need some help from all you folks that are much smarter than I am. I have my bit probe set up to run the following G-code (G53 X-22.77 Y-429.2 Z-120 F2000; G20 G38.2 Z-0.7 F2; G92 Z.062; G0 Z 0.7; ) in Universal G-code Sender. It works, the problem is it zeros the “Z” axis at the point where the switch is triggered. Meaning Z will always be the same level as the top of the switch. I need it to take an initial measurement on the first tool after I set the Z height. Then set the Z offset to each tool I change into the spindle afterwards. I was thinking G92 is not the correct command to use but honestly I don’t know.
Am I barking up the right tree here???
I’m thinking I need this(G53 X-22.77 Y-429.2 Z-120 F2000; G20 G38.2 Z-0.7 F2; G10 L20 P1 Z-3.4; G0 Z 0.7; ) by removing the G92 function and adding G10 L20 P1 Z-3.4, as far as I can tell, this should calculate the difference between my current Z0 and the height of the bit probe. Is there a way to test this without crashing my machine? I hate when I do that.
Any help would be appreciated.
