General Mach Discussion / Probing around a pin to find center
« on: March 23, 2014, 09:22:02 PM »
Hey everyone, name here is Pete.  Newbie to Mach 3, with a probing question.  I need to probe around the end of a .050 pin, and be able to the change tools, if needed, and drill a .0138 diameter hole on the end of that pin.  Just the other day I set up Mach 3 with the Autoleveller for probing PCB's to be able to mill them.  So far, it works great.  But I want to be able to do the same kind of thing with X and Y around the pin to find that tough center point.  Been doing it with a Microscope and then inputting the offset into Mach 3, but still is not accurate enough to get exact center most time of the time.  Thanks for any input, or even a link to a previous forum discussion.
