Is there a center finder on the open builds software with blackbox?
No. But you can write or find the code and add it to a macro.
Can anyone point me in the right direction for one? I'm no coder. What code is it?
"Center finder". I'm assuming you want to find the center of a hole? What probe do you have?
I'll be using a endmill for the probe.
I use mach3 with 2010 screen set on my other machine and that has all the print scripts built in.
I've got a touch plate with a hole in the corner. I use the hole to find the center of the corner
So, you're actually trying to find a corner. I'm assuming your plate looks like this
Instead of probing the hole, probe the outside edges. Here's the a post about how to build your code and add it to OB Control as a macro: OpenBuilds CONTROL Software
that's similar to what I have made. I can use outside edge probing. The center probing was also handy for other applications.
For sure. The center is good for v-bits and such. Hit me up if you have issues.
