Any new stuff going on with edge probing?

If you are a probe user, you may be interested in the abilities built into the MachStdMill software:

I looked at that, thank you.

I downloaded Stirling's program, but i can't get it working. Probe comes down, moves forward to contact, retracts, moves forward to contact and then stops. I have adjusted speeds and acceleration up and down. I'm not sure what to try next. I think I'm almost there. Help.

EDIT: By Stirling. As I explained in our PM correspondence it clearly states in your controller manual that Ajax handles G31/probing differently from the standard Mach3 way and that's why my routines don't work FOR YOU. It's unlikely that ANY Mach probing routines will work with the Ajax controller UNLESS they're specifically written for it.

I have been using the polar array probing program. It runs fine.

Marv

Have you downloaded the latest version and the readme? http://www.razordance.co.uk/probe25D.htm
If you can tell me your specific problem i.e. how far have you got. I'll try to help.

Cheers

Ian

Stirling, where can I get a copy of your probing routine? I'm doing some edge probing experimentation and your Mach probing routine will give me a good starting point.  I understand I will be totally responsible for any issues I may have using it.

Thanks. Jeff

Stirling Mentioned a while back that he had ideas for a much better 3d process. Hopefully he will bring out the new DELUXE model soon.

Hi Jeff - I've sent you a PM.

Hi Terry - I'm currently working on the DELUXE model which will have some NICE new features - preview coming soon! (I'm also the most part through coding a brand new all singing all dancing screen editor).

Cheers

Ian,

I'm very impressed how good your probing routines work in Mach3. Can't wait for your Deluxe version to come out. Thanks again.

Dave,

I really like your MachStdMill Professional Edition with the probing operations also. Still running the Trial License, but will register it soon.
