Digitizing with a touch probe MK3/4 USB

Postby gonzo318 » 31 May 2017, 19:22

Andrej, I have been loving the controller, flawless to this point. I am wanting to set up a digitizing touch probe and, after searching the forum, did not find a lot of help or direction as to where to begin. I thought I might be overlooking a tutorial or something. Looking at the probes out there they vary in cost considerably and are often restricted by the brand of software for which they were designed. I am using Vectric Cut3D. I'm fairly certain the Planet CNC software will support this function but I do not know where to look. Anyone out there with some tips for a beginner?

Well...not exactly what I was looking for. I am wanting to "scan" a 3D object and use the scan points to make an .stl file to export into Cut3D. I already have a movable tool sensor that works just fine. What I need is the sequence for setting up a 3D probe and executing a scan. :)

Andrej - Yes I also need this connection information for TNG please. I have the same probe as your Utube video and so the information must be available?
