You are a pain in the arse TP, looks like I will have to eventually hook up some wires to my probe instead of just using the LED and doing it manually ;D
Looks very interesting :)

Can anyone think of ANY other probing routines that need to be covered ?

Hi Terry,

For some of us who aren't entirely sure what each probing routine picture shows, maybe a brief description of each would help sort out what you already have in mind, and possibly what someone else may need/want?

How about edge/wall probing routine like Stirlings program does that will follow around the perimeter of some shape and records the X&Y coordinates into CSV data? Then that CSV data can be imputed in for the 3D digitizing routine so it will only digitize within that shape to save time. Also something that will convert the CSV data generated to a G-code or STL file. Should I continue?  ;D

THese are probing routines for 2.5d / mechanical work.

Stirling is working on a new improved version of the creepy crawler type 3d digitizing routine.

There are programs that already do all the rest(;-)

Stirlings probing routine does not have a 4th axis option, so how about that? Lets say you have a figurine you want to 3D digitize all the way around with your rotary. How about styli ball diameter compensation for the 3D digitizing too? I see that is one of your routines.

Can you also have 3D digitizing routine retract to some distance from the last probe point instead of it doing a full retract in Z every time? Like this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYJU1kwtzV4  It also saves it as a STL file which would be a plus too. I'm sorry if I am being a pain in the butt.

Thanks. Jeff
