Calling tool_touch_off.ngc subroutine from another subroutine - Probe Basic

Hi, 

I would like to call tool_touch_off.ngc subroutine from my remapped M6 subroutine, but I am missing parameters:

#<fast_probe_fr> = #1 (set from probe screen fast probe feed rate)
#<slow_probe_fr> = #2 (set from probe screen slow probe feedrate)
#<z_max_travel> = #3 (max z distance the tool travels before erroring out if not contact is made)
#<xy_max_travel> = #4 (max xy distance the tool travels before erroring out if not contact is made)
#<retract_distance> = #6 (distance the tool retracts after making contact during fast feed mode)
#<spindle_zero_height> = #5 (G53 distance from home to spindle nose triggering point on touch plate)
#<tool_diameter_probe_mode> = #8 (activates the tool diameter probe subroutine section)
#<tool_diameter_offset_mode> = #9 (activates the tool diameter offset position for probe subroutine section)
#<tool_diameter> = #10 (current tool's diameter used for offseting probe position in x axis)

Where those parameters are stored? Is there any chance I could access them from subroutine and and use them when I call tool_touch_off.ngc?

Best regards,
Guntars

I have done it like this, 

[code]#<fast_probe_fr> = 50                 (1: set from probe screen fast probe feed rate)
#<slow_probe_fr> = 10                 (2: set from probe screen slow probe feedrate)
#<z_max_travel> = 28                  (3: max z distance the tool travels before erroring out if not contact is made)
#<xy_max_travel> = 0                  (4: max xy distance the tool travels before erroring out if not contact is made)
#<spindle_zero_height> = 87.1121      (5: G53 distance from home to spindle nose triggering point on touch plate)
#<retract_distance> = 0.5             (6: distance the tool retracts after making contact during fast feed mode)
#7= 0                                 (7: n/a)
#<tool_diameter_probe_mode> = 0       (8: activates the tool diameter probe subroutine section)
#<tool_diameter_offset_mode> = 0      (9: activates the tool diameter offset position for probe subroutine section)
#<tool_diameter> = 0                  (10: current tool's diameter used for offseting probe position in x axis)

o<tool_touch_off> call [#<fast_probe_fr>] [#<slow_probe_fr>] [#<z_max_travel>] [#<xy_max_travel>] [#<spindle_zero_height>] [#<retract_distance>] [#<go_back_to_start_pos>] [#<tool_diameter_probe_mode>] [#<tool_diameter_offset_mode>] [#<tool_diameter>]

those parameters are set from the offsets page in probe basic.

Yes, I know, but if you want to use tool_touch_off.ngc outside it didnt work.

o<tool_touch_off> call [#<fast_probe_fr>] [#<slow_probe_fr>] [#<z_max_travel>] [#<xy_max_travel>] [#<spindle_zero_height>] [#<retract_distance>] [#<go_back_to_start_pos>] [#<tool_diameter_probe_mode>] [#<tool_diameter_offset_mode>] [#<tool_diameter>]

runs the tool_touch_off subroutine, and this one will have parameters.

with #1 #2 #4 etc. you will get the error that Parameter missing
with value like I did it works 

How can I use the parameters from Offset page? will have more handling instead of using 2 times parameters

This is exactly what I implemented few month ago when I initially set up my router. I had run into issue when I updated values in UI and forgot to update them in subroutine and that caused some mess, that is why I am looking for solution where I can avoid to 'hardcode' values in subroutine and I would prefer if I could somehow get them from the place they are stored and then pass them in to call as parameters. Or some other solution if there is any.

That is correct and tool_touch_off.ngc works fine as far as it is called from UI and I guess when it is called from UI parameters are included, but in case if I call tool_touch_off.ngc from subroutine parameters are missing that is the main problem that I have.

Any ideas how I could get parameters from UI that you listed in picture?
