Zero probe

Hi yal

I am planning to buy a zero probe
And where do I buy one
Is there something I should think about?
I have never used a zero prob


Hi Robert
Now I have read through everything that was in the link
But I do not know how or what to buy

If all you want is a Z probe. Go here -->

if you want the probe that finds all three axis that will help you restart carves and etc. here is a link to the product that everyone is referring to.

to do all three axis you need more that just the touch plate. you will need something to generate the G-Code to touch off all three corners that can be recalculate for different bit sizes. this product also has a program that does that and stores the information for future use. this is the products everyone is talking about because it saves so much time having it all in one program.


The Triquetra 3 axis Auto Zero Touch Plate Kit is so much better that a plain Z-probe. Well worth the cost, especially on sale. Charlie is fantastic if you need any support.

I use the triquetra touch plate. Its great. And @CharleyThomas is a great guy that offers outstanding support. He spent a couple of hours on the phone with me to install and fine tune the touch plate that he makes. I cannot say enough great things about Charley and his products.

Ditto on everything people say about Charlie. He is the salt of the earth. You won’t find a more customer focused individual anywhere you look than Charlie. He has sent me more upgrades and helped with issues than I can count and all his support is free.

Hi Charley

Thank´s for all information
First a question: what is an x-controller, what´s it use for
I have an 1000mm x-carve

How do I pay for the items and shipping to you?
credit card or paypal or…?


If you own an X-Carve you may have purchased an X-Controller pictured below:

When you place your order on my website there is an option box for selecting your controller. You have two options, 1 X-Controller and 2. All others.

This just lets me know if I should include the plug adapter for the X Controller in your order or not.

For Payment, when you checkout through my website you will be redirected to PayPal for payment. Your credit card information is NEVER entered on my website. It is handled completely through PayPal. This is to protect both you and I.

To receive the 30% off on both the Touch Plate kit and the Y Axis lift kit, add the Touch Plate kit to your order first and then add the Y Axis lift kit to the order before you check out. If you have any problems please email me directly at

seriously Bob
I have not had a thought about it
I’ve been too busy with the X-carve
I bought and looked after
to learn it fully

I’m sorry Bob

I will not place any question on this forum no more
You satisfied ?

Kristian you shouldn’t hesitate to post questions. These forums are the reason I made my purchase of the xcarve. There are more people here interested in helping then you might think.

I’m certainly no expert on the xcarve but I have found searching the forums will answer most of my questions. I always search first.

Some replies I see here make me shake my head. Laugh it off and move forward if you don’t appreciate the reply. We are learning from others experience and knowledge. Even when a reply asks if we searched first.


Thank you so much for those comforting words,
It gives me hope
I had searched before I posted that question
But did not find a good answer
Because I still consider myself a beginner
I find it difficult to ask them “right” questions
Maybe I should start by asking how to search.

Once again
Thank you for those comforting words

Just read over the material at least three times. comprehension sets in and it will start to make sense. once you start understanding what the commands do and how it is done, then start using it. we all had problems understanding at first but with time, patience, and practice you will start doing the zero probe like it is nothing.
