New Widget: Super Touch Plate
If you’ve ever used Chilipeppr’s Touchplate widget and seen how easy it is to set your Z origin, have I got the tool for you! I present the Super Touch Plate widget! It’s pretty self-explanatory, requires no modifications to your machine, and should be stable! This widget allows you to use the zeroing technique of the Touchplate widget on all three axes of your machine one at a time. You’ll need a special kind of touch plate that has a point of electrical contact in all three axes, and I’m working on sourcing one of those and/or making one. When that’s all set, I’ll make a video demoing this widget for your learning pleasure.
If you want to test it out on your machine, you’ll have to go to my workspace, as it is not in the normal TinyG workspace. Note that this only works on TinyG, I don’t have a GRBL machine to test with, my apologies to GRBL users. I’m sure porting is not a hassle, and I would be willing to port it when I have a GRBL test platform.
