Commented on Touch probe for measuring and digitizing about 2 years ago
Thanks! I chose an old endmill as a stylus since I have a lot of broken/dull ones and they are stiff as hell... My guess regarding accuracy would be to get some gold-plated steel balls and rods to improve electrical contact and also make the parts out of machined metal instead of flimsy printed plastic. As it is, the accuracy of the probe is at least as good as the one of my mill. When it comes to fastening, this design is for machines with a 43mm spindle collet, so you put the probe instead of the spindle. To put it in a regular collet (ER11 or whatever), I suggest this variant: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:507156 (but I would definitely make the shank from metal if you want any kind of repeatability).
