    Default Aspire post mod for first/last z moves

    Hello everyone, first time poster here. I want to mod the post for aspire so that my first and last z moves are at the max z height of the tool. I have a desktop with a z proxy switch. It looks to me like after touching the prox it writes the value to &my_XYzeroOffsetZ=
    Is there a way to use this varible to to move to max z?

    Here is the header

    begin HEADER

    "'[TP_FILENAME]"
    "'File created: [DATE] - [TIME]"
    "'SHOPBOT FILE IN INCHES"
    "IF %(25)=1 THEN GOTO UNIT_ERROR 'check to see software is set to standard"
    "C#,90 'Lookup offset values"
    "'"
    "JZ, THIS IS WHERE I WANT TO MOVE Z TO Z MAX
    "'Turning router ON"
    "SO,1,1"
    "PAUSE 4"

    Assuming the offset was set and written after the Z was zeroed, your line in the post would be:

    JZ,
    &my_XYzeroOffsetZ

    Simple as that

    Thanks Gary. I think it's working the way I want it to now. The JZ, &my_XYzerooffsetZ need to be on the same line. Running just this line gave me the machine limit error so I changed it to JZ, &my_XYzerooffsetZ - .125 so it stays 1/8" below the switch. Also added a first rapid move sequence and took out the jog home moves between posted operations. End sequence also retracts z to max limit first and then moves x,y home.
