Develop a motorized probe magazine much like every machining center has.
That way it could be mounted in the dead space at the end of the Y axis of most machines.
When a probe change is needed PC-DMIS would move the machine to a predetermined point for that port, the port would extend to the Z rail and unload or load a new probe. This would allow better use of the measuring envelop and enable use of that dead space at the end of the machine.
