Thanks! It really makes it easy to use a variety of probes with minimal switch over time.

This is on my list along with a few other bits when I get ready to build mine. Very well thought out.

Hmm....still trying to figure out what software I'd need to make sure of the limited switches, and probe? I'm assuming Carbide motion doesn't 'support'?

Carbide Motion doesn’t provide buttons for this functionality, but one can use the MDI window to type and send the commands.

bCNC does provide buttons for this, as do other programs.

I just received my kit today and it looks fantastic! Unfortunately it will be quite a while before I set up my machine but at least I have it ready now! Very professional and quick shipping.

Just wanted to add my feedback on the kit. Everything arrived nicely packaged. The switches functioned very consistently and appears to be accurate to within 0.03mm based on a few tests. The 3D printed parts were very well done and fits perfectly. Thank you!

Thanks, if I use the MDI window what are the commends to zero the axis?

The commands are documented on the wiki, but it seems to be best to just use bCNC for homing operation: http://www.shapeoko.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=6579
