Thanks. It seems so far that anyone who has a probe working is running an older version of Mach3.

If you were to look at a section cut of my point cloud I have a double row of points. Imagine a 2D half circle of points with an offset half row of points for each section it probes.
Also is there a point number limit on Arnie's (from Mach3) plugin software. My probe stopped before finishing the x,y grid size that I input.
Thanks.

Keith,
I am getting into the probe thing, but have learned that the plugin is really a only good for older releases of Mach like R 2.63.
What plugin did you use and what release of Mach did you use?
Thanks.

Accutrans 3D at
http://www.cadcamcadcam.com/software-accutrans.aspx is supposed to take the point cloud and make I guess a surface out of it.
After you get a surface then you can use a program like BobCad to create your G-Code.
My question is since you both are asking what to do with the scan data you must have a working probe plugin.
May I ask what plugin you are using?
Thanks.

Dave,
What probe program or plugin are you using?
I am running Mach3 V R3.042.020 and am having  problems with the plugin.
I believe from posts and emails to Mach that running an earlier version, say R 2.63, that the plugin works.
Arney, who wrote the plug in software, has been retired for a couple years and it hasn't been updated for new releases.
With all the smart people out there I was hoping someone would either write a new plugin  or modify Arney's to work
on new releases.

Tweakie,
Thanks a lot. That sounds like exactly what I need, as far as my knowledge goes. It seemed like I was so close.
I will give that a try tonight.
Again thanks fro the info and quick response.

I am new and learning every day on this so please be patient with me and I won't be insulted if you assume I know nothing.
I have my probes red wire to pin #15 and yellow wire to 5V on a CNC4PC, C11, break out board.
What do you mean by needing a stiffer resistor?
Thanks.

Conroy,
Did you ever get an answer to your "Prev. seq. not yet complete"question.
I got the same results and had to hold down the computer power button and reboot to get it out of the loop. Now I was using the probe as an active low setting when this happened.
My probe is Normally closed so I am using it as an active high setting now, but when I trip the probe I don't get any switch light recognition in the diagnostics screen of Mach3.
Does any of this sound familiar?
Also is there a tutorial or instructions on how to use the 3dprobe plug-in?
Thanks for any help.
Rick

I don't know why I used Port 1, but why did you use port 2 for your probe?
