Thanks for the reply. The reason for probing around a feature would be to see how accurate the x,y alignment is in the alignment stage, before proceeding.
I often think my alignment is perfect even with a USB microscope to verify it on both axes for both holes. (The holes are on opposite corners of the board, as far as practical.) When I start the probing run and it probes around a hole, I find that the alignment is off by a few steps x and/or y. Experience tells me that if I print without re-aligning the ink may fall into the hole on one side and be separated from it on the opposite side. That often leaves the rivet with a tenuous connection to the ink.
I have partially addressed this by increasing the size of pad around the via so there is more ink. But nothing really beats accurate alignment.
Anyway, once you start the probe process, if the alignment isn’t perfect you have to stop the probe, which causes the machine to reset and then re-calibrate before it will start the re-align, adding 30 seconds to each alignment attempt.
