We propose a model of three-dimensional behavior of the dynamic probes. This model uses the hypothesis that for at least one contact point, the effort becomes zero when the probe records the measure. An experimental verification shows the quality of the model. We then propose a new model which combines an experimental 2D measure with a very simple theoretical equation. This model constitutes a method of correction and allows the creation of a new method of calibration.
