I really have not had any luck with small holes (eg 10mm). There are non-probe moves happening after the probe enters the hole that cause an error. Really there should be no non probe moves inside a hole.


That is the edge length move (in versa) you need to make it smaller for small holes.
Check out the help button on versa. I made the images bigger in the feature branch

will do.
I use Seb's buildbot2 debs.

I will keep an eye on it. checking the 'changes' that show up here...

I haven't pushed it to any real branch. I won't merge it till it's tested a bit.

git pull
git checkout qtvcp_probe_max_z_fix

should do it

No Rougish. Cmorley was referring to this test branch. so it won't be in sebs Debs until we test
Just do a RIP install.  If you have not done that befor, let me know.
git clone github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc linuxcnc-dev
cd linuxcnc-dev/src
git checkout qtvcp_probe_max_z_fix
make -j4
sudo make setuid
.cd .../scripts
. ./rip-environment
linuxcnc
If you have any custom components, you need to rebuild them in the RIP environment

the first set of data are correct for the inside diameter of the bearing that I was probing.
the second set is incorrect. I probed the outside of the bearing using the center icon thing on the 'Outside' page, and the data given in the Status is that for an 'Outside Length'

I have done RIPs for many years, but not on my current mill.
I just copied the 2 files, and will test 'em by replacing the current files with the new copies. should work since it's a .ui and a .py, not compiled.

well.  not going to work.   way too many modified files.....I'll just way until it's all pushed.

I thought you'd know how. I don't think your shortcut will work. There are other significant changes to probing in that branch and a lot more files than a .ui and handler have been touched. If you are using sebs Debs, there are not many dependencies to install. configure should list them. Just copy the list to a text editor, clean up the list and install them. It would be good to have another tester.. I feel lonely.....

I'll think about it..... it's definitely better to have more than 1 tester.....

well, trying.  but no luck..  won't compile
not sure what your line   'make -j4'  is doing. 
I get error   'Makefile.inc must specify RTPREFIX and other  variables.  stop.'


also looking at:  linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/code/building-linuxcnc.html

drop the -j4 if it's a problem. All it does is specifies the number cores when compiling to add a bit of speed (eg multiple threads run instances of compile). Maybe you don't have a CPU with 4 cores. It worked for me yesterday  :)
The Docs are very good so follow them and you should be right.

If it helps I grumbled a bit when I had to do a RIP on my mill too.
Ethercat was failing until I copied the .so file to the correct RIP folder and I had to compile a couple of custom components.
