Hi Verser!

Thank you for your work on this nice probe_screen.

I just wanted to give a bit of feedback regarding some minor Bugs in your screen. Maybe that helps to improve your nice work. :-)
I m just testing the version from today from Probe_screen_master

- Measurement outside:
- Tooltip says: "Cilinder" should be "Cylinder"

- Settings:
- The input field of "Search Velocity" has no black Frame. All the other settings do have it.

- Misc:
- "Auto Rott" should be "Auto Rot" as i think Rot is short for Rotation.

- Result:
- The tooltips have a bit of an offset to the right, or should i say the boxes end too far in the right.
For example: if i place cursor over the pictogramm of "Diameter" the tooltip says "Probe Y+ pos."
When i move cursor to the right (and off the pictogramm) it says "Diameter. I hope you know what i mean.

Hope it helps for making it even better.

Have a nice day.

Mathias

Dear Users,
I am happy to say "Hello!", while it is my first post on the forum. It will be nice time here :)
Thank you for developing this measuring probe feature.

Probe calibration method presented already by lerman is really clever, but I would like to suggest a typical one: (maybe it is obvious to you)

1. Calibration ring is fixed to the machine and will stay there for some years.
2. Finding ring center coordinates in machine cordinates system using this device (01:15):

so that theoretical spindle axis is going through ring centerpoint
This calibration is performed only one time, because ring is fixed to machine table.

3. Calibration of the probe: positioning spindle with the probe in already measured ring center point.
4. Performing measuring (06:25 in the same video)
and calculating offsets.

Features:
-No spindle rotation needed -> good repeatability*

Drawbacks:
-for stepper motor machine with no measuring systems: ring center positioning repeatability is equal to repeatability of homing endstops.
-fixed calibration ring takes some working area.

What are your views about this method?
Best Regards, Jakub

I have been working with probe screen in gmoccapy. When I switch to the probe screen on a user tab and do the first probe move after switching to the probe screen and starting the first probe routine the screen changes back to the main gmoccapy screen. Once I go back to the user tab and do subsequent moves it remains on the probe screen.

If I switch to another gmoccapy screen then back to the probe screen user tab it happens the same all over again. I am not sure if this can be fixed in probe screen or if it is an issue in gmoccapy.

Dear community,
I have been playing around with this tool and find it very useful, indeed. However, I am using Axis and are unable to fit the GUI in the available space. It seems to be made static in size and so some of it is hidden and can not be made visible. I tried to redesign it in Glade to make it scalable to fit the available space, or at least introduce scrollbars, but have given up. Are there any Glade wizards out there who know how to do this?

Thanks,
/Chris

There is such a flaw with displays 1024x768

I have plans to fix it in the nearest update.

Hi Nitro,

The last I heard you crashed your probe, did you get it repaired? how is working? Do you have any videos yet? I know so many questions and I'm not trying to be pushy, I'm curious to know.

Thanks
Thor

I did get my probe working again. I made the videos on the touch probe and they are located in the following thread. I am planning on making some more videos soon but I have been working on getting my new workshop ready for the winter.

Hi,
I hope someone help me, I can not configure, does not work, I do not see axis.
I have ubuntu 10.04 and linuxcnc 2.6.12.
My config.ini, name is fresa.ini and is locate: /home/dino/linuxcnc/configs/fresa/fresa.ini

1)I have created three folder macros,probe_icons,python in /home/dino/linuxcnc/configs/fresa/
2)and have copied all file from git in their respective directories (macros,probe_icons,python).
3) I have add:
EMBED_TAB_NAME=Probe Screen
EMBED_TAB_COMMAND=halcmd loadusr -Wn gladevcp gladevcp -c gladevcp -u python/probe_screen.py -x {XID} probe_icons/probe_screen.glade
[RS274NGC]
FEATURES=30
SUBROUTINE_PATH = your_subroutine_path

[TOOLSENSOR]
# Control probe rapid speed
RAPID_SPEED = 600

in the file fresa.ini
4) Have copyed .axisrc in /
Where am I wrong?
Thanks

please post your full config folder ( fresa) as an archive
if you open a terminal and type dmesg if should give you an error message if you read down the list
it will give you the filename and the line number of the error , and a message pertaining to the error
