    As the title, has anyone had experience doing this with digitising probes? My understanding is Mach3 is capable of doing it, but i am unsure of how to find cost effective hardware or where/how the G-code is sent to CAD for modelling

    Thanks

    Do you mean surface analyzing for machining back on to it or surface modeling based on probing information?
