This is a response to a post in another thread but I figured it should have its own vs hijacking the other. This is about the Fusion 360 Brother Speedio post changes to make the Z-axis move before rotation a property you can set in the post General dialog box. I/we are wanting to add this feature to a Brother post, preferably hi-fly-cncs on GitHub, so the Z-axis doesn't home every time you rotate the 4th. It would also be nice to do the same when using multiple WCS offsets as a separate setting.

Freds here on PM made changes to my Kitamura Yasnac post back in 2018 to add the settable Z-axis move to it, and it works flawlessly. I have attached 2 posts, one with and one without Freds changes so you can compare them to see the changes he made, there are a few extra changes that are not relevant. I had to change the files to .txt as I couldn't attach .cps files.

Below is the post box showing where you set the retract amount you want in retractoffset, what I think the relevant code changes are, and then a sample of the code this post posts. I can make some changes to the post but the changes needed are well beyond my abilities.

I merged 2 photos together so please note the space between the sections properties and function onCommand.

Hopefully this makes sense and perhaps this might be a handy thread to have.

Looks like its posting that retract in the current WCS and using the tool length offset, does that mean you just measure the clearance value you want relative to Z0 in your Fusion WCS and enter that in your retractOffset?
If that could be enabled when jumping between multiple WCS that would be super helpful, hopefully Ed can include that into his Brother post.
