Yes. I can mill the hole at an exact position on the Carbide3D probe and know how much the offset would be. All this to satisfy my hunger to keep learning. Knowing different methods to set your zero is key to a good work strategy. So far I have been creating things from scratch and always having zero at a very easy location. I want to be able to mill onto a ready made part and be accurate. My hole would need to be closer to the bottom left corner of the probe to avoid the electronics. It’s position is irrelevant as long as you know it’s offset. Will wait until I know what type of aluminum the Carbide3D is made out of. I’m still on the fence about doing it. I like the idea but don’t know if it’s worth the risk. Opinions?
