Great too see it live Charley!

For the rest of the Onefinity Users, as a Beta tester for this product, and a previous user of the Triquetra Toolbox for my X-Carve I can tell you that this is a game changer for anyone who wants to precisely control their Zero point.

Not only can you set you Zero to have any offset you want, but it allows you to zero to front right, or even zero off round objects. There is an Expert Mode and a Beginner mode which makes getting up to speed with how to use it quick and clear. Then once you know it in and out you can flip to Expert Mode and skip all the tutorials etc.

For $10 this is well worth it, when Charley and I talked he was going to charge $20. @charleyntexas you must be in the Christmas spirit already.

Thanks again Charley for all you do for the forum and now another great tool!

Charlie, does the OF software have a macros feature that can use all of the different toolbox compainon zeroing gcodes for 1/8 and 1/4 bits? Kinda like the picsender does.

You will need to create a file for each diameter of bit you use. Bit diameter is defined as the diameter of the portion of the bit that will make contact with the sides of the touch plate and not necessarily the type of bit. A 1/8 inch v-bit, ball nose, and strait end mill would all use a file created for a 1/8 diameter bit. The OF controller doesn’t make any calculations based on bit diameters the way Easel or Carbide Motion does. All of the calculations are made in the Companion software when the file is generated. Also the Companion software does not link to the OF machine itself. It only generates zeroing files based on your inputs. You then send that file to the OF controller just like you would a carving file created in V Carve and run it the same way… as if it were a carving file.

I just ordered the software as well. Hopefully this help make things easier in February when I’m setting up!

Charlie, I already have a Triquetra touch plate. Can I use the companion software I already have to generate the gcodes?

@McFarlanMade Yes, if you already have a Triquetra Touch plate and Triquetra Tool Box it will work fine with the OneFinity. You will need a new wire though. The connection at the controller is different than you have. They are available on my web site.

Charlie,
Is this $10 or $20. I see this page and hit the link to find something else. Just a FYI.
