For PhillC regarding PlasmaC and Z axis stuff

I am using a different float setup on new machines, so the float has to travel 7mm to trip the switch + 2mm of overrun, them move up the full length plus pierce height, so that makes 12mm of retract travel on every probe.

I can have a look at that extra parameter that we discussed before. You would just need to add an allowance for the extra motion up.

Plenty of room there, 180 to 200mm travel on Z.
Rod said it nicely, we are demanding ba$....... :)

I have often thought about this as well. Unfortunately PlasmaC doesn't know about jobs, only cuts.

I wonder what happens in HAL when you do a M30 or M2?

In fact, I wonder if you could sense the end of a job by looking for a change in motion.motion-type from non zero to zero?
It really is a pain in the wet arse!

Tommy, can you add a set screw adjuster to take up the slack? best thing I ever did by allowing me to adjust out the switch hysteresis.

Yes i can, but i was more for the cut screws thing since they do use about 6 or so mm of travel ! :)
To much ??

Consider yourself reminded! :)

I thought you'd lknow better than to remind somebody at 10:30 pm after a bottle of wine. think I should blame Phill for teaching me bad habits!
