-Next, the table on the settings page presents a number of values in the XY-plane and their z-positions. These values can either be inputted manually ​by using a sensor and recording ​the position by hand, or by using the M402 macro. In order to use the macro, move the sensor to the position you want to measure, then press the **Measure ​(M402and Save** button. This will lower the sensor down until contact, then lift it back up and record the z-position at which the sensor was triggered+Next, the table on this settings page presents a number of values in the XY-plane and their z-positions. These values can either be recorded by using the AutoMeasure procedure (recommended) or by using a sensor and recording ​each point individually ​by using the M402 macro (older versions).
  
-{{:​mycnc:​flatbed-003-m402.png}}+Using the AutoMeasure procedure, the operator can set the reference z-height, the number of points at which the height measurements will be taken for the XY-plane, and the coordinates on which the measurements will be taken. The **Auto Measure Procedure** button can then be pressed to begin the probing process.

 By adding these correction points, myCNC software will use triangulation in order to create a complete updated map of the working table. From here on, whenever Flatbed Correction is enabled, the machine will automatically adjust the z-axis height of the working tool in order to adjust for the table level changes depending on where in the XY-plane it currently is. By adding these correction points, myCNC software will use triangulation in order to create a complete updated map of the working table.
