Just plug the probe into the CarveWright, set the desired scan area, then watch the CarveWright go to work. The Pattern Editor software comes included with the Scanning Probe purchase and allows manipulation of your scanned image on a pixel by pixel level.
Most scan objects will require a simple wood sled, or jig, to move it through the machine.

The dimensions of the sled can vary but the maximum width is 14.5” and the maximum depth is 2.25” from the mounting surface to the top of the rails. There is no maximum length but any sled over 3 feet long will require additional stand-alone outfeed support rollers. The support rollers should be adjusted properly to avoid letting the sled sag or rise, as any transition going on and off the rollers will be reflected in the scan data.
