  • Can't find this probe in probe utilities

    We have a built star probe (comes preassembled and can't be taken apart) that I am trying to use and no one here has ran it in quite some time. I can't, for the life of me, find it in the dropdown box in the probe utilities window. It's a 4 probe star that measures 30mm across probe center to probe center. Anyone have any idea what this is called in the probe utilities?

    What usually "hides" components for me is not having the correct thread size for the item you're looking for. You won't find M3 thread components in a M2 only list though it'll still get me from time to time.

      When you say 4 probe star, do you mean 3 probes at 120 degrees apart and the 4th pointing down or 4 at 90 degrees with 1 pointing down? The later would actually be a 5 probe star.

      Also besides the length of the styli, what is the diameter of the ruby? In line with Kp61dude!, what is the thread size?

        4 @ 90deg. Has a hole for an M2 thread in the center. 2MM rubys.

      You have to build it from scratch. Is it the Renishaw N-5000-3626-00-A. I can post a copy of mine that I built and I had Renishaw build me a custom that 33mm across.

        At the bottom of the M2 list are a bunch of "TIPSTAR{yadda}" components, including a couple 2by30. You need to select CONVERT5WAY first, though, to use it.

          Update: I didn't get the probe I was asking about to work so I built a star probe on a 5-way end. The reason I didn't use that originally was because it was shanking out during calibration (the 4 start are 2mm10 tips and a 4mm20 pointing down). I'm running a SP25 head with the SM25 module so it had to scan calibrate to start and I can't change the calibration angle on the sphere for scan calibrations. I let it shank out for the scan calibration then went back and did a points calibration where I can change the attack angle on the sphere. Scan calibration was out but the points cal was good since no shank. Yes, I ran a master probe first (always) selecting "yes sphere has moved then calibrated the star selecting "no".
