2017 Problem touching a hole

Postby CADdy » Tue Jan 21, 2020 9:17 pm

Hi ger21,

when touching a hole I noticed the following problem: The probe moves on and looks for the right wall of the hole. If the "Probe Distance" parameter is set shorter than the radius of the hole, the probe moves slowly to this value and then accelerates fully to G0. Only an emergency stop will help to prevent the probe from moving against the wall of the hole! I was fast enough and was able to prevent a crash. My mistake was to have forgotten to set the parameter.

It would make sense the machine would stop when reaching the set "Probe Distance", when the probe had no contact yet.

This behavior will be changed (fixed) in the updated version I'm working on.
