Macro - increasing/decreasing z probe sensitivity
Is it possible (or how would you) increase or decrease z probe sensitivity via a macro?
put in another way, can I send a G31 P[current value +1] ?
What are you trying to accomplish? Perhaps it can be done another way.
I am trying to get a piezo z probe to work reliably and there is a lot of fiddling involved including changing sensitivity. It would just be easier pushing a button than sending g codes. If I could have done this for sensitivity then other parameters could also be changed via a macro which would be ever so handy.
I think the fact that there is no rudimentary smarts in the g code system is a big negative. Is there a time frame for this kind of feature or is that not even in the works ?
One option is to create one macro for each value you want.
It's a little tedious to create, but you can make some pretty usable menus, especially if you use the PanelDue.
Thanks, that is what I ended up doing ... very clumsy but it works.
