Can anyone help me I have problem to import DFX.cambam files (probe) from MR Bean. I have Microsoft xp service pack 2, and installed MS Net Framework1.1 and hotfix kb886903 and NET Framework 2.0 with security update. I can install Cambam and get the program to start, looks normal. And after that i downloaded files from MR Bean probcambam and try to opend it but only receive an Error message:There is an error in the MXL-document (14,55).
and a code is diffrent from file to file. I have tried the other way to install the cambam with no luck. I have two computers and thay behave in the same way, same Error. What do i do wrong please help me i really want to make the probe. And for extra info i cant load any file.
Eureka! I think we've cracked it!!!
The "One Penny" Touch Probe
This probe took me a few hours to make, using pretty simple stuff and has been continuously scanning for 2 days now (90,000 cycles), without any glitches.
It's only a wobbly prototype but can resolve down to about 0.01mm.
Some surface mount bits turned up today so I'm going to build a Mk II version using a milled pcb and some other improvements MrBean and I are contemplating.
I also happen to have had dumped on me several acrylic sheets some builder was chucking out in some assorted (day glo) colours. I think that'd look pretty cool, especially a 3 LED version
Yeh. Forget "Intel inside", this should be badged "Electronics Outside".
well the picture isn't all that clear on your web sight.
So just to clear it up.
The coin/penny is drill thru and the bolt goes thru it?
this then rests on the pin heads for contact?
The spring pushes down on the penny/bolt for adjustment?
And the silicone is for keeping the penny from sliding around?
And from what I gather the silicone goes around the prob inside of the shaft hole underneath the pins???

Yes, so that the head is against the top (unfaced face).The coin/penny is drill thru and the bolt goes thru it?
Yes, like a dolmen.this then rests on the pin heads for contact?

Yes. To be honest, I haven't put any on the prototype, but I thought it would be a good idea as if the probe gets pushed sideways the diskAnd the silicone is for keeping the penny from sliding around?
can rub against the inside of the cylinder and hang.
I would put it outside. That way you can put it on afterwards when you're happy it's working. Or you could use a small piece of silicon tube maybe.And from what I gather the silicone goes around the prob inside of the shaft hole underneath the pins???
10Bulls is it still working? Are you gonna post plans?
No greater love can a man have than this, that he give his life for a friend.
10 bulls - just a thought. Had you considered substituting a small cylinder of foam rubber for the spring ?
I see the spring as being asymetrical in its pressure on the penny, and the foam could also act as a seal above it. The foam could be stuck to the penny for location, and a second piece underneath the pin assembly could as as a lower dust seal.
It's like doing jigsaw puzzles in the dark.
Enjoy today's problems, for tomorrow's may be worse.
A violin maker I know in NYC tells me that his sillicone/urethane castings come out so accurate that they preserve even the smallest imperfections in the surface like chipped varnish, etc.
So I make a urethane casting, then use the touch prove on that. And I can be as rough with that as I want. Couldn't be simpler.
If you cut it to small you can always nail another piece on the end, but if you cut it to big... then what the hell you gonna do?
