Re: WCS zero X and Y macro

Unless I am missing something and you have used all available WCS depending on your licensing, why not allocate one (e.g. WCS6) just for the jig. Then you are ready to go as and when required but still retaining the flexibility of the other WCS settings for other work. Advantage is no programing req...

Re: Password requirements

Sounds like the OP needs to review his security - Workshop CCTV, sensors, alarm, strong admin password, disconnected LAN etc. If he is that concerned perhaps surround the whole workshop with a full faraday cage :mrgreen:

Re: 50% Rapid Button

DP-4 Fast feed rate with short stylus

I have a 20mm Renishaw carbide/ ruby available for a specific job coming up and do not want to damage the Probe.
