Summarize what it does

How to Run It


  1. Place all of the SpindleView files in any folder (there are about 7; some have long strange names). I use C:\Git\spindle-view in Windows.
  2. Find Npm (node.js installer) at Download | Node.js (nodejs.org) and install it.
  3. Then install the node.js application http-server in the global namespace by, in a command prompt:
npm install -g http-server




A demo of SpindleView


  • Reticles — this is an overlay on the image with a target and a ruler of some sort.
  • Zoom — zoom in or out on the image
  • Measurement mode, such Machine or Workspace or Distance.


  • Move the head to center the camera on the clicked spot.
  • Center the spindle at the camera center spot, as if to drill there.
  • Based on the height of stock move the camera for best focus and distance measurements highest accuracy.
