Probe?

Post by rmasci » Tue Dec 06, 2016 1:25 am

Hi Does the probe work? I connected the probe on my xcarve to the probe / ground pins on the CNC Board... I am using xcarve-server / xcarve-proxy so Inventables Easel program can control through the Pi CNC Board. I can do test cuts, and use the homing switches, but When I ran the probe setup it didn't do anything. I double checked the wires and they're connected ok. Anything I can do?

Thanks,

Rich

I have not played with it much but I have seen a few people use it with bCNC before...

I've successfully used the probes and bCNC to auto level a PCB for milling. Needed no complex set up. Just making sure the z height was correct and zeroed. Worked really well.
