    Question Where to enter probe tip diameter?

    I have a digitizing probe (it's not a ShopBot touch probe). In the pdf (https://www.shopbottools.com/ShopBot...izingProbe.pdf) that explains how to to 3D probing, it mentions the "Probe Tip Diameter" on page 11. But in the probe settings screen (see below), there is no field for tip diameter.

    If you select the .sbp output version, the tip diameter setting is available because the file is run "as-is". The dxf output is used when there is going to be further manipulation in CAD, so the offsets will be applied based on the probe tip you are using.
