    What are the probing forces like with this probe?

    Can you use regular M3 stylii (or M2 with a M3 to M2 converter) or do you need the tungsten carbide M3's?

    I can't speak on the force used but I have use one in the past and you can use pretty much any style of probe build that you want that is within the limits of the X1

      the only thing that i see is different is the magnet that holds the pucks on seems stronger on the H scanning body

        That's parameters that I use :

        ProbeTriggerForce 0,0396
        ProbeLowerForce 0,0192
        ProbeUpperForce 0,072
        ProbeMaxForce 0,096
        ScanAcceleration 10
        ScanOffsetForce 0,06
        ProbeReturnSpeed 0,4
        SP6MTXLowerForce_LSPX1H 0,0096
        SP6MTXMaxForce_LSPX1H 0,24
        SP6MTXUpperForce_LSPX1H 0,12

        In comparison, those of the SP600 :
        ProbeTriggerForce 0,12
        ProbeLowerForce 0,06
        ProbeUpperForce 0,18
        ProbeMaxForce 0,36
        ScanAcceleration 10
        ScanOffsetForce 0,12
        ProbeReturnSpeed 1
        SP6MTXLowerForce_SP600 0,18
        SP6MTXMaxForce_SP600 0,54
        SP6MTXUpperForce_SP600 0,36

        I use classical M3 or M2, and some M4 and M5, after modifying the cups...

          I use a 0.5mm probe with a fairly long shank and it measures very accurately, though I don't use this probe much because it's pricey and delicate (haven't broke one yet, knock on wood). No flexing/overload issues that I can tell. Forces remind me of that of a Tp200 though going on faded memory of the old Tp200 that I haven't used in many years.
