Producing several of the exact same item

Do I have to probe for Z after each cut when I am doing the same cut on multiple pieces?


  • Does your project rely on the accuracy of pockets or depths?
  • Are your blanks all the exact same thickness?
  • Are your blanks/stock perfectly flat (no warping)?
  • Is your spoilboard perfectly flat?

Realistically, how long does it take to probe-Z? It would definitely become tedious after many repeats, but the more time you spend setting up your job, toolpaths and work-holding, the better result you will get. If they are all the same, no warp etc then you should be okay.
