  • Changing Probe while DCC mode.

    Hello Guys,

    While running program under DCC mode , i noticed that X<Y<Z coordinates have changed for the new probe.

    At first i run program with 3 x 50 mm probe , then i changed to 1 x 30 mm probe and calibrated. But the origin point has changed. When i check with move point command( ctrl+m ) , it shows different X,Y,Z for both probes before and after changing the probe.

    What can be done to solve this issue ? is there any other procedures or compensation options ?

      If I understand you correctly then this is perfectly normal. One probe is 20mm longer so the numbers should be around 20mm different in Z (at A0B0 angle).

      A quick way to check would be to try measure a feature you measured with the first probe, with the second probe and you should get the same numbers. (i.e if you measure a hole you checked with the first probe then its xyz location should be the same (or very close).


      If I don't understand you correctly then the probes don't correlate with each other properly.


      In either case this video explains about proper probe calibration procedure when using more than one probe.
