4th axis probing

 Here are some useful programs for setting the WCS for your 4th axis projects.

ProbeA_Rotary.nc is used to set the axis A origin so that a flat surface on your part is horizontal at A=0.

ProbeA_YZ.nc sets the Y and Z work offsets so that Y=0, Z=0 lies on the rotary axis.  This routine works with any shape of stock mounted on your 4th axis and can even use the body of your vise.  It does not require a special straight, test part to obtain highly accurate and repeatable results.
