Tool changer delta

Hello friends! who will tell you how to implement an additional motor and limit switch, for example, for changing the tool, or, for example, cleaning the nozzle with a brass brush?
I know that it is much easier to implement this all on a servo drive, but you need it on a stepper motor.
the algorithm of actions is as follows: the end switch is needed to set the starting point, before the start of printing, the head is sent (Zn), the brush extends and makes a movement back and forth, then goes into the parking lot.
algorithm # 2: the head rises to a height (Zn), the tool moves out (let's say a laser) sticks to the magnets, the head makes a movement to the side to prevent the magnets from sticking, the handle is parked from the tool; the head goes further to work.
You can use M584 to create an additional linear axis on your delta printer. That axis can have a homing switch just like any other, and you can add commands to home it in your homedelta.g file.
