Designed a Z probe to work with non-conductive materials. It works with makerslide (shapeoko 1,2).

Not bad. That’ll get you the top of the work piece. I keep thinking you could do a more precise touch probe with a simple switch like that and a ballpoint pen casing with the spring reversed. What would be nice is a latch to flip it up and down. Flip it down to use it where it’s lower than your endmill. Do the probe. Then flip it back up and enter the correct offsets and you’re off and milling.

All good Ideas! Perhaps next revision.
