Position of probe and penetration depth

I am using sensable haptics with vizard 4.0.
And I have to calculate the amount of force felt when probe hit any object in virtual environment. But, I am getting problem in finding exact or closest position of probe when it touches. Actually, current position will help me to find depth of penetration and force exerted.

And, I am not able to find about "how much object deformed due to hitting of probe."

So, please reply me.

You can detect when an object in the haptics simulation is touched using the <sensable>.TOUCH_EVENT. Then you can use <device>.getForce() to get the force exerted.
