    I've got a C beam with the cnc pro v3 board and have finally started using the chillipepper software
    I noticed that there was an auto set for the zaxis and want to make my own zaxis plate is this just a case of soldering a wire to a copper plate and one to a Croc clip, then wiring up to the xpro or is there something else I would need to make my own.
    Thanks
    Jas

    That would work.
    Here in this post in the video is one like you describe made for the xpro V2. https://openbuilds.com/threads/cnc-xpro-driver.487/page-14#post-29046

    This is my new favorite way. I clip the ground alligator clip to my endmill and the other to the tape. It works great.
