Probing plugins
« on: November 06, 2013, 12:02:26 PM »
Hi there, I've read quite a a few post abut probing, but none of the post of very recent, are there any probing plugins which work with the latest version of mach3? Intersted in touch probing or video probing. I have some 2.5D parts which I would like the replicate.

Thanks

Jim

Is the probing not being worked on by anyone any more?

There are apparently bugs in Mach3 which currently prohibit any other methods.

So when you say any other method, does that mean bed of nails method works?

Does anyone have an update on these bugs, are they going to be fixed? can we roll back to a version prior to these bugs?

No, they won't be fixed.
I believe they exist in all versions of Mach3.

And the bed of nails approach does work.
