Touch Probe skew angle?
« on: February 17, 2011, 10:01:44 AM »
Hello,

If i have a touch probe and I wanted to edge find a rectangle in a vice that has not been clocked in...can mach 3 compensate for the angle...and therefore account for the minor differences when it comes to make the cut? i.e say the rectange is not at 90 degrees on the table, but a 87.

Thanks,

Andy

I was sure there was a wizard at one time for doing this but dont see it now, maybe its on the yahoo group. Other thing you could do is search here for maybe something like rotate plane.

Ok this is what I was thinking of, never used it so dont know how well it works if at all.
You will need to unzip it to your addons folder in the Mach3 folder and then you should see it in the list of wizards next time you start Mach.

I didn't know that one existed, and it seems to work really well here in sim.
Thanks !
