I'm looking for a recommendation for a "GOOD" 3D probe for around $150 to $200.
I just destroyed the one that came with my Sieg X3, after going through two new probe tips. All because it would not reliably trigger. I'm pretty sure it was the probe and not Mach3. Probing is something I've never had problems with in Mach3 with passive touch plates. Just this silly 3D probe.
It could be that this particular 3D probe (a Wildhorse Innovation probe or clone) could be a fault. It was used when I got it, and it does show quite a bit of wear. The pivot point looks like it was glued together after a previous mishap and one set of ball bearings look like they were repositioned at one point.
I just want a automated reliable 3D probe that takes some of the user error out of the equation.
