    Finally, today I managed to release my new Probe screen, the version 3. The files include a simpler installation procedure than the one before, as well as a modified RUN tab, which is optional, if you don't want it you don't need to install it. There is also a pdf document explaining how to install and use the Probe screen.

    The new Probe tab looks like this:

    The parametrised version is considerably more flexible to use but it needs to be set up by the user.

    The additional screen is a support screen for probing from the RUN tab.

    You can read more about it on my blog and also how to download it.

    If anyone is using this feature, please download again and replace the M20040.txt macro with the new one. I have just detected a bug, which may result in that your probe will be crashed into the work piece if you are probing the outer centre of an object, using the "X, Y Outer Center" button. I don't think many people use that button, but be aware of the problem.

    What happens is that after probing in Y direction the probe is Y centred and moved towards negative X but the movement is only half the distance of the Probing size value when the probe is lowered. This is now corrected in the new macro.
