With the Z-Probe on your X-Carve, material height calibration is easier than ever. Plug the two-wire end of the cable into X carriage, attach the black wire clip onto the collet, and plug the red wire into the gold disk. (See picture below) When the endmill bit lowers down onto the disk it complete a circuit and logs the precise height of the material.
Proper assembly of Z-Probe
The X-Carve operates by plunging an endmill bit into your stock (material to be cut) and then travels in a set toolpath in the X and Y axis. If the cut is too shallow, the part may not function correctly for it's use and if the cut is too deep you risk damaging or breaking the endmill bit. This kit not only allows for easy calibration, but very accurate measurements as well.
Don't break your bits!
