The Current Version of ProbeIt is V1.1.5
* You must have Mach3, version 3.43.19 or later. I recommend the latest lock down or 3.43.66 or later.
* You need to have a probe setup that triggers the ‘digitize’ input in Mach3. You may test by assigning a keyboard key to be a ‘probe’ input if you don’t have a probe, but it still requires that you have the parallel port driver installed and an assigned key setup in ‘ports and pins’.
* This wizard IS NOT COMPATIBLE with MachStdMill from Calypso Ventures, and cannnot be run while using MachStdMill Screenset due to conflicting use of DROs/LEDs/etc. A workaround to use this wizard is to setup another Mach3 Profile that uses a standard screenset.
* This wizard is tested to work on machines driven from the standard parallel port, a Smoothstepper, CNC Drive UCx00, or CSMIO. There is NO guarantee that it will work properly with any other external motion control device, as probing is handled within the motion controllers and not Mach. Test at your own risk.
**WARNING** If you have a generic Chinese made external motion device, such as a ‘Digital Dream’ or similar, do not bother trying this wizard. Probing is not implemented correctly in these devices, and they have been reported to produce random moves which may damage your probe. This has been reported by a few users now.
