The Carbide3D BitSetter is an automatic tool offset probe for your Shapeoko that makes it easy to run jobs using multiple tools without the need to stop and re-zero manually.
BitSetter measures the length of the cutter in your spindle and, combined with Carbide Motion, automatically resets your Z-axis zero point to reflect the new length, making tool changes simple and straight forward.

BitSetter works on all Shapeoko 3, XL, XXL machines running Carbide Motion 428 or later and includes the splitter required to use with our Shapeoko Touch Probe.
BitSetter includes an adapter board to allow you to connect both the BitSetter and the Touch Probe.
Does BitSetter replace the Touch Probe?
No, the Touch Probe helps set the zero point on the machine and BitSetter adjusts the zero after a tool change.
Will BitSetter work on my machine?
BitSetter comes with wiring adapters to fit any version of Carbide 3D Shapeoko electronics. It requires Carbide Motion 428 or later. BitSetter will not work on the red Sparkfun Shapeoko machines.
