hook up your probe and run the digitize wizard

the answer is not valid.
 watch the video, wait 2 minutes of playback.
 really that scans from the axis X.
 moving along the X axis and Z axis ascending when it touches the workpiece.
 is not what makes the Mach3,

The Impact / Laser plugin that I use for laser engraving was developed from a Mach probing routine. The source code for this plugin is available from the plugin’s page and if you take a look at the code you will see that it is already two thirds of the way towards the probing routine shown in the video clip.
OK you would need to know a little C++ but it would not be rocket science for you to adapt this plugin to suit your own needs if you are determined enough.

Just a thought.

I actually went and watched the video and see what you meant.
I assume it only runs on their controller as a plug in software

Hello.
 I agree with you.
  but I want to know is:
 Mach3 can do?
 Has anyone done it?
 It is a good beginning to develop a plugin or routine scan, I do not know much about software.
this is my machine.

 I have changed the stepper motors for AC servo motors with encoders.
 fast scanning system is the only thing I'm missing.

no.
 works with an electronic circuit and a software called "colibri CNC" of the Italian company Twintec.

I would say that Stirlings Crawler method for probing would stand a chance or could be modified to do the job.
