Did you buy this Tool Setter? Thinking about adding support for such type of probes to the ProbeApp.

Re: cnc 12 version update

Looks like the Upgrade Page has not been updated:

It still says CNC12 v4.16 instead of v4.18.

Re: corner finder

I came over from the "Tool Setting Options For Router and Mills" thread. I've looked at Sword's corner setting macro and see that it calls for the probe to be tripped on PLC input 5. Is that the same as the Acorn input 5? The Acorn probe setup guide (and my machine) are setup for the prob...

Re: Probe V2 app on Ver update

Hello, Just updated to v4.62 as recommended. So far so good. Except what do I need to do to get Swissi's probe app to show up on the VCP so I can you it again. Thanks, It's all documented in the ProbeApp User Manual Post here if the instructions are not clear enough and I'll improve them. -swissi

Re: Fusion 360 Mill Post Processor for Acorn with additional Features (New Version 5)

If I choose XY Positions at end of job and select G28 OR G30 I get the following: G90 G53 G0 X0. Y0. Shouldn't the G53 command be a G30? I can't reproduce your problem. When I select a G30 X/Y position at the end of the job I do get the correct code. The end of my job file looks like this: N96040 M...

Re: ProbeApp V2: The ultimate solution for Tool Height Offsets

I'd like to make one suggestion. In the offset library manager could you add a way to input the manual offset (like say x+ 1.000")? So if I have a 3" face mill I enter X+1.500" and the probe routine moves from the tool change position X+1.500" then measures the tool. I don't hav...

Re: ProbeApp V2: The ultimate solution for Tool Height Offsets

I already managed to see some videos on how to configure the KP-3 probe butI need to measure several holes at the same time and in the three axesX, Y, Z could you support ...

Re: Trouble with the update 4.6

I finally got the update installed as the mill version. Tried initially to install as the router version which resulted in a failure to communicate with acorn. Tried again as mill and this time it loaded and ran. I then tried to restore the current report. The correct file came up and the the progr...
