Native support for touch-trigger probes

Hi, I’m trying to use the PGFUN 3D touch-trigger probe with my shapeoko running gSender alongside my fixed toolsetter. I’m struggling to get them to play nice together with the auto toolchanger wizard, it would be really great if there were a panel similar to the current probe panel to execute probing steps, and if the Z offsetting could be natively handled with the auto tool change wizard.

If anyone has some suggested workarounds or macro workflows, that would also be greatly appreciated.

I don’t know if you have written any macros before or not. I recently made my first.

The basic structure is declare the variables needed for the macro. save the initial state, do what you want to do, and then restore the initial state.

I found this section User Guide · cncjs/cncjs Wiki · GitHub to be very informative. gSender being a descendent of cncjs all info there is relevant.

If you need a gcode reference try LinuxCNC "G-code" Quick Reference you can get a feel what different gcodes do at the start and and click to get the full rundown on the ones you’re interested in.

Thanks for linking me to the cncjs guide, that’s helpful. I’ve written a few macros, at the end of the day it’d be great if this could be offered out-of-the-box, but I’ll give it a go and share any workflows that are successful
