@Kat I jacked that up. Thanks for testing. The link I gave you was for the wrong file (I named them incorrectly), the probe dimensions were off (I think…what are the X & Y dimensions of the C3D probe?), and there was probably something else.
Anyway…the one you want is linked below. Because I don’t want anyone to mess up their probe / end mill, some of the moves go too far. That can be tightened up.
Also, my probe diameter was consistently 0.1mm small (I used a carbide blank), and after checking everything else 100 times, I am guessing I have some belt stretch calibration to do. I’ll get to that eventually.
Video - braved the freezing garage just to get this.
C3D Probe Macro (Tool Diameter Independent)
Beaver CNC Probe Macro (Tool Diameter Independent)
If you have your own design for a probe block, you can just modify the “User defined variables”.
The Beaver CNC version works better for blocks where the wire connects in the back. C3D’s version is if wire connects on the right.
For what it’s worth, I think the macros above are a bit of a novelty. They might be a decent solution for probing with a v-bit or tapered end mill. In most other cases, though, you would know your end mill’s diameter.
In this macro, you can manually change the diameter as you need.
