Hello all, I’m seriously considering purchasing a Nomad - looks like a great desktop machine for CNC.
One of the things I’d like to be able to do with it is sample a relief surface. Based on my current research it looks like it might be possible, but I’d need to use a different GCode sender?
Basically, I’d have to GCode a 2D grid in X&Y, stop at each point and slowly move Z while sensing some sort of probe. The probe could be something I make or something purchased - not really concerned about that at this point.
I’ve got plenty of software experience, including motion control, but have never worked with GCode.
Would it be possible to use the Nomad in this way?
I guess that what I’m asking is, is what are the machine limitations in respect to what I can send it with GCode? I did find the supported Gcode list but it doesn’t mean much to me as I’m not familiar with Gcode.
Any input / advice appreciated.
