Trumpf does this on their two big Okuma mills in CT. They mill the

the probed data. Pretty slick. They use software to generate the probing
program these days. Several Cam products now support this with a metrology
module. Missler and Delcam are two that I know of and both work very
Exactly what we do except with single tip probes. Every part here is
done this way. have been led to believe though that these tri-tipped
probes don't work well on the cnc... we'll see about that. <g>
I'll be implementing the probing within my cadcam system as well : )
Currently we write endless macros... My plan is to use the star tipped
probe for certain castings that have an undercut to measure for cleanup
prior to cutting with a wheel cuttter. Currently, we only measure the
top and sides which is not the best if there is a core shift.
