  • Standard stylus not showing up??

    Ok, I ordered a standard 3mm x 12.5 stainless Steel barrel probe stylus from Renishaw. Went to build it up, and its nowhere to be found in the drop-downs. Anyone have any idea how to get this probe built up in the probe utilities dialogue?

    EDIT > PREFERENCES > CUSTOM PROBE BUILDER UTILITY. Or if you prefer to go old school you can edit the probe.dat file (found in the install directory).

      Or rather add a definition to USRPROBE.DAT - probe.dat should not be modified, as it will be overwritten in the next update.

    3x12.5 : 12.5 is the B dimension or EWL ? (overall length, or effective working length ?)
    Maybe it's a 3BY20, with a EWL of 12.5.

      Sure it isn't Ø3x22.5? Renishaw number A-5003-1258? That's in there.

              Sorry, I wrote cylinders as cone (8 values instead of 7...)
              This one should work...
