I just purchased and installed the Carbide touch probe. I used it to set my z axis zero with a 90 degree V bit. I started my run on cutting out stars, and they were all way too deep. I stopped the cut and zeroed the z axis manually. I checked in Carbide Motion, and it says the z axis was at 3 mill. I zeroed with the touch probe again, and then did it manually. It still showed me to be at a positive 3 mill. What gives?
When you zeroed, how was the probe sitting on the workpiece? 3mm is exactly the height of the lip on the bottom.
Yes it was sitting on the work piece and the lip was hanging over (around the corner).
When you’re just zeroing Z, I believe it should NOT be hanging off the corner. The whole thing should be on top of the workpiece.
I will give having it sit up top a try. Instructions on how to use it would have been great!
Yes when just zeroing z. The probe should be on top of the project and not hanging off the end.
