Need help reading Current Position Parameters

Does anyone know how to read the MSC using #5021-#5024? No matter what I do these variables return “0”. Is there another parameter that works to read out the current G53 axis positions?

Hi Mike - I don’t think that is supported by the buildbotics controller, but I could be wrong.


If you refer to it doesn’t appear those parameters are explained in their documentation m
Not sure if G28.1 would help you out…

Upon more research and experimentation, I can accomplish what I wanted by calling “#<_z>”. This actually returns the relative offset for the given coordinate system.
