To use the probe, you connect it up as you would in Easel. In UGS you type in a macro. That is is a series of gcodes separated by a semicolon. It’s in the section called “macro” oddly enough ;-).
It is saved when you power off so you don’t need to keep entering it. When you want to zero, you click on the macro and it does its thing. You set up the machine in Easel and when you use UGS, the settings are the same.
This will show you how the macro thing works.
You’ll have to measure your probe thickness and decide how much you want the z axis to move before it contacts it. You’ll also decide how far up you want the z axis to move after the probe determines the zero location.
This is mine:
G20;G91;G38.2 Z -.500 F1; G92 Z .589; G0 Z .125
and it goes like this:
Imperial Measure; Incremental distance mode; Probe target g code; Coordinate system offset; rapid to height.
