    X & Y edge finding script

    Does anyone have the scripts for X & Y edge finder? I have finally gotten around to modifying an electronic edge finder to work as an probe input.
    I have looked everywhere and have only found the center finding script. Unfortunately, I don't know enough coding to modify it from there.
    Just need probing from LEFT to RIGHT, and from FRONT to BACK (positive direction)

    Re: X & Y edge finding script

    It's hard to believe that nobody knows any of these scripts. It's a pretty big part of Mach3 I would think. Anyway I have been searching for three days straight on this subject and have finally landed on a working screenset that uses the original Mach3 screen.
    The button scripts are beautifully annotated too.

    Re: X & Y edge finding script

    Hi have a look at my routines "Squirrel Probes" I just this moment updated all the files
    it uses the original screen set and has all the probes you will ever need.
    Crawling contour
    X Pipe
    Y Pipe
    circles i.d o.d
    Rectangles Id Od
    Singles lines
    and now with 4th Axis with A axis aligned to either X or Y axis
