Why do I need a probe?
Probes are great for reproducing:

The probe comes with a choice of two different size shanks 1/4 and 3/8
These are 3 very important manuals
This manual will enable you to convert your point cloud to an stl file
and how to connect the probe
You found a belt buckle from 1902 that you want to reproduce
Your friend has an r/c car that you would like to reproduce various parts out of aluminum
Your favorite pool cue inlay
You found a plastic mold on ebay that you would like to replicate
A probe can perform all these tasks
· Our probe is 5 way triggered and has a long-wearing .079" (2 mm) diameter, ruby tip.
· Accuracy equivalent to Renishaw TP1 probe
· Six foot Shielded cable included.
· It is rated for 10 million samples (switch operations) before carbon build up
· The biggest problem with many ball and rod contact based probes is that after 100,000 samples (that's 100,000 switch operations) the contact resistance would increase because of carbon buildup. So much that the op amp circuit would start to fail to switch its output state. The contacts don't wipe (self-clean) and a buildup of carbon occurs. This would result in having taking the probe apart and clean it.
And as luck would dictate you would be in the middle of a delicate scan
How did we solve this problem?
We contacted a large University and explained our problem
After working together and researching various material interactions
We found a combination of materials that: allowed us to make 10 million switch operation before any cleaning is needed
