probe scanning XY direction
« on: July 23, 2008, 01:55:09 AM »

the wizard for 3d scanning is good, however going up and down all the time is slow.

does anybody has developped a wizzard which would work as follows:
- start of scan at z depth.
- when probe detects touch, then it raises Z till end of touch.
- move X or Y step.
- if no touch then move Z down till touch
- then up one setp back and X or Y+

and so on?

to do this the probe shall be able to detect lateral contacts but I beleive it would be much faster way of scanning...

if this exist please let me know where to find the code!
