    Default old version of MCX (x6) probe routines

    Ok, I am guessing this is a long shot but I will ask. I am using MCX6 that has probing enabled (of sorts), but I am finding it doesn't post any actual code, well it does, but just-

    No matter what I try to do with it...

    It is not renishaw productivity plus addon, it appears (I've no experience with it anywhere else) to be a toolpath in Mastercam, maybe their own version? Any ideas or thoughts? FWIW it is in the toolpath dropdown menu at the very end, and it is just called "probe". When you select it you have different options, example probe X web/Y web, tool length, etc. It will let me pick points on the part and such, but still posts no code, not even a rapid or feed move to a position I have picked....

    Back when I used X6 regularly, about 4 years ago now, I remember using that probe toolpath with results that were similar to (or possibly identical to) yours. I just opened up X6 a moment ago here and when I clicked on the probe path it gives me a message that Productivity Plus is not enabled.

    I believe you need the requisite bits added to your post processor.
