Ihave purchased a MicroScribe 3D (i know it's the older model, i wanted to learn a bit about reverse engineering etc.) Trouble is i cannot for the life of me get it working.
Firstly, anyone who may have one, am I right in saying that once you load the MicroScribe Utility Software (MUS) you should be able to move the arm around and see the figures change in the display?
I wanted to try and set up and do some absolute basics in excel, just record some points, and see what's what.
Any help, pointers, guidance would be great.
I've now tried the arm on Windows 7 (with USB adaptors), 32 Bit Windows XP with USB adaptors, just now have reloaded my server with Windows XP home and plugged it straight in to the serial socket, and although the software sees it, the figures aren't moving when I move the arm. The figures seem to be stuck on x 298.4538 y 13.4762 z-157.7893
Any help would be magic,
