As an old Chilipeppr fan I know there is surface scanning functionality built in.

As an old Chilipeppr fan I know there is surface scanning functionality built in. So I wanted to share a small 3USD probe tool I made during the weekend. It enables probing without attaching conductive tape to the workpiece. Hope you like it!

Thank you. I am going to try it for carving some curved pieces.

Which cnc controller is used? Great project!

Hi Frank :smiley: I use Estlcam as controller for the moment. http://www.estlcam.com/

No, i mean the hardware: grbl or tinyg?

Actually none of the above. I use Arduino for HW but Estlcam has it’s custom controller firmware

Awesome! How does the chilipeppr surface scanning thing work - are there perhaps any links to a tutorial or other info for a noob please?

Not sure abt chilipeppr - but regarding the design I found and even better on. Will make a new version using this approach instead - much simpler :smiley: :smiley:
