The probe in the first video (top) is not the SFP1, but rather, Renishaw's RSP2 tip-scanning probe for dimensional measurement. However, the SFP1 relies on the same laser tip-sensing technology to measure surface finishes ranging from 6.3 to 0.5 Ra.

The second video (bottom) demonstrates how the Revo’s rotary B axis and the SFP1 probe’s passive C axis work together to change the orientation of the stylus.
