XYZ CNC Touch probe
A high precision XYZ touch probe designed and made in house at CNC3D from billet 6061 aluminium, these touch probes are the ideal way to set your zero to the absolute edge of your work piece or to do a circle probe function.
These probes feature a 4mm hole for inserting a banana plug to easily connect your probe wires.
The Cable Kit option includes 3 meters of fully shielded and flexible figure 8 cable welded soldered banana plug and alligator clip for optimal reliability in noisy environments.
For those new to XYZ probing, the primary purpose of these probes is to accurately set your zero position in reference to a corner of the piece of material you are working on. Simply place the probe over the corner of your choosing and position your endmill approximately 10-20mm above the middle of the CNC3D logo engraved on the surface of the probe. Then simply run a macro to set your XYZ zero point.
Using your XYZ probe is easy on a GRBL based CNC machine using our SharpCNC commander software via the probing Wizard.
Please see macro examples below for usage on other platforms.
