    Default Digitizing with PCNCautomation routers

    I have a digitizing probe from Maxnc. I had limited success with it when using the Maxnc software. Now that I have Mach with the Digitizing wizard and the jack for tool setting, I wonder if I can plug in the digitizer and it will work with the new cnc and software? The digitizer has a plug which will need to be cut off and a new mini type one put on. Any ideas? Thanks.

    I talked to Bill Jounson about that and he said it should work well with the Mach3 Wizard.

    What does that scanner look like and how does it mount - just chuck it in the DeWalt?

    Please let us know how you make out.

    Yes, it is a 1/4" shank and plugs in place of a bit. The probe is spring loaded. Well so far it will work when I pull down on the probe as opposed to pushing it up. Something must need to be flipped on or off somewhere in the parameters. There are plans for making a probe on the net that I saw today in my search. Search for digitizing probe and add mach to the search if you can't find it. I don't know much about mach yet to make any changes to anything.

    There's some wiring info in this E-bay add if it helps:

    Thanks. When you see how relatively simple things they are, you can appreciate the lower price. You could probably build one with a simple homemade mill.

    When was it you talked to Bill Johnson? Do you mind sharing his current contact information?

    Thanks.
