Hey fellow CNC enthusiasts. I have a Shapeoko XXL with a limit switch kit and zero probe. I had initial problems with my zero probe because of not setting the probe on top of the project to reset z after my tool change. Will from Carbide 3D Support was kind enough not to call me an idiot in his email response to me explaining how the probe works. After reading the directions in the link Will provided and trying out the proper procedure I still find that my z zero is consistently off by +0.7mm. I tried just probing z on the top of my spoil board today and found the same result. This without ever moving my machine in either x or y.
Has anyone else experienced this? I received my probe in either April or May of this year after it being unavailable for some time. Would like to know if this is a machining defect, software/firmware issue or me being an idiot again.
My probe appears to measures 25mm overall thickness and the cutout for x,y and z corner zero is 22mm.
