Note that Mach3 versions below R3.043.066 may not run the script correctly due to several unsupported Cypress Enable script functions.

Also note that you may have to disable Mach3’s Z_Safe feature for the script to run correctly.

  • Hi Charlie
    The script link doesn't seem to be working (at least for me)
    It asks for an email address to send the download link but never actually sends it. Can you please upload the script on some other site? Thanks in advance

  • Thanks a lot for your wonderful content. I have a question 😀

    I have used many hours and now I thought it was time to reach out ! I've got a CNCz 6040 China Machine, Mach3 and a windows 7 computer.
    I can move my cnc, run programs and stuff- spindle works, but when I go to Mach3 Diagnostics there are no green lights showing at Port 1 pins current state? How is that? I ran a monitor program to check my ports activity and could see there were some ports that were red and some were green.

    Well all this began because I wanted to use my touchplate probe… I can press the auto tool zero button- but I doesn't stop it movement down the z-axis when it touches the plate. BUT-–I can only use the auto tool zero if I have my active low unchecked as soon as I check the active low setting in ports and pins input for the probe it doesn't work. I can see the digitize light is green when active low enabled. And it doesn't flash or turn off when i test the probing plate. What is wrong? Could it be a missing ground connection in the controller box for the probe? Or electrical noise? Or my setup? A bios thing with printer port?

    I know the CNC 6040 are not the best built machines, but it is all I could afford ::) I hope I dont need to solder stuff and rewire, as I am not so proficient in electrics.

  • Nice video Charlie, and nice clean code. I'm having one issue. After I have homed my machine to X, Y and Z I then move the bit into position on workpiece, I zero X and Y. Then I put touch plate on workpiece surface and click auto zero. The bit moves down slowly, makes contact and then retracts all the way back up to hitting the Z home switch at the top! It should only retract .05" per your script. Any idea why it's doing this? Thank you!

  • Love your video, downloaded your script. But I got a problem. My plate is .760 thick, came with the machine, China CNC 6040. When I auto measure, it puts -.760 in the offset, not at the bottom of the touch plate. Any help appreciated. Thanks

  • Using mach3 3.043.066
    STB5100 board
    Driver: bl-usbmach.dll
    I have a issue..
    In the file i edit only this:
    VarStandOff = 5 'STANDOFF DISTANCE ABOVE PROBE CONTACT

    VarTouchPlate = 11.5 'PRIMARY/DEFAULT TOUCH PLATE THICKNESS
    When doing the Auto Tool Zero
    i Think that the tool should go to 16.5mm, but no..
    Goes to 17.7 +2.2mm
    Is that normal?
    Solved…
    Chinese usb motion don't like to use getVar() have to change with getoemdro()
    Until now..
    Works really well…
