Probing plugin records Z up as well as Z down?
« on: April 06, 2008, 06:05:17 PM »
I just started probing and looked at the output .txt file and see that the retraction point (Z up) is being recorded as well as the contact point (Z down).  Is that correct?  Doesn't seem like I'd want those points.

Can't help you directly because I was unable to get the probing plugin to work at all. However it certainly seems on the face of it unnecessary to record the rectraction Z level.

It was because I was looking for a little more than the available probing routines offer that I started http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,4352.0.html

You may want to take a look at http://www.razordance.co.uk/probe25D.htm if you don't want to plough through the whole thread.
