3D Digitizing Probe SKU 20176

The SHARK® 3D Digitizing Probe by Next Wave CNC is an Authentic Accessory designed and built to enhance and advance creative options and opportunities for professional woodworkers and home hobbyists.

The SHARK® 3D Digitizing Probe mounts in place of a router bit in the router or spindle chuck on any SHARK® CNC, allowing you to make an exact copy by tracing objects down to 0.001" detail.

Just place the object you want to duplicate onto your SHARK® Aluminum InterLoc T-Slot bed to trace it. After tracing the object, the SHARK® CNC produces an STL 3D file which can be imported into software like Vectric VCarve to replicate objects, shapes, and patterns on your SHARK®CNC.

This process is especially beneficial to luthiers, furniture makers, and restoration work, replicating basic shapes for carvings or reproducing damaged areas on antiques or other irreplaceable items.

The probe gently touches the object during the process of sampling locations along the surface.  Its internal sensing is done by optical switches which provide accurate and reliable measurement over millions of contacts.

The SHARK® 3D Digitizing Probe can also be used to trace the outline of the edges of a flat part in order to produce a 2D file for cutting out copies of the part.

Once the probe is done and the files are created, you can cut or route as many copies as you need for your project.

Caution, the tip may mark softer materials, such as clay, basswood, or plaster.
We suggest testing a small area on the material before scanning the entire piece.
