Hey All,

Wow, is this Forum DEAD or what??

I just purchased the DeskCNC probe..
The documentation is terrible.

I am doing some scans and everything is coming out at a angle?
Anyone have any ideas, why?

See my example below..
Don't mind the other garbage on the scan.
The half dollar moved when I was scanning it.
Just pay attention to the bottom part of the half dollar.

Well, I found this info..
Which helped alot..

I think IMservice should include these docs with the probe.

Other then that, seems to be working ok..

One question though..
Why would one have different steps for the X and Y.
Why not keep them the same?

The example of the quarter, they have the X steps at 100 and the Y steps at 275.
