    Save Points To STL and Measuring Outside Corners -> Built-into TNG?

    On Youtube I noticed two features demonstrated and cannot tell if these are readily available in TNG or whether they are something that I need custom G-Code and O code to perform. How do I do the following:

    1) Generating STL from probe measurements: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRpyc9iHLls (CNCUSB)

    2) Measuring outside corner with probe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXMB9-SXTRg


    Thank you.

    Re: Save Points To STL and Measuring Outside Corners -> Built-into TNG?

    What I have found so far to measure the points of a surface ("Save Points To STL").....

    In TNG with a probe configured, installed, and ready to measure...

    1) Machine -> Measure -> Surface
    2) Provide value.
    3) Once operation on step #2 is complete....Machine -> Points -> ___________
    3b) Notice at the top of the menu Machine -> Points, there is a heading "Count: " that is followed by the number of points measured.
    4) Choose to "Save ..." , "Save STL ..." , "Save DXF ..." , or "To Output" (the UI element) .
