    Very useful addition to my build

    Posted by Michael Saltmarsh on May 21st 2020

    Works well as advertised, operated within minutes - after I downloaded the latest control software! I took off a star because the little button magnet to couple to the bit or chuck disappeared after the first use, not well attached in its holder. It must be somewhere in the workshop. I had a spare (larger) button which works fine. The device works well, and saves a lot of setup time. Great job.

    Nice addition to my machine

    I was using the Z-probe function and want to know why OpenBuilds didn't have the XYZ probe? I was excited when they announced this new product. I ordered as soon as I received the ready for sale email. The unit installed in minutes. Updated my software and worked first try. Clear and easy! My only feedback would b a longer piece (perhaps 4 or 5') of wire. I would buy another if I had a second machine.

    Great probe + software that works. Magnet could be tricky

    The probe is easy to assemble and works great. The magnet was not the easiest to put on the bit since the wire for the magnet is stiff

    OB Team nailed it with this XYZ probe and OB Control interface. It is so great to get exact XYZ locations automatically without having to lean in, squint and hope you have ‘close’, then auto retract! And the OB logo on top ands a touch of class !

    XYZ Probe

    This thing is a life saver, time saver and material saver. It was very easy to assemble and the probing app in Control was a breeze to use. Time to probe was less than a minute. It beats sighting, jogging, sighting, jogging, si... you get the picture. Also much easier to zero out Z versus the sheet of paper technique.

    Great for material thicker than about a 1/4”.

    Highly recommended.
