Re: Rename probe assy

Nate is on to it...there is no way in UCC Server to rename. You can solve your problem by creating a new tool in server using the component that is already being used for the incorrectly named tool. After that CMM-M will just read in the new Tool name (v3.7 and newer) then you should be able to cali...

Re: Reporting Composite Position

If you are going to use auto-alignment fill-in tools it may be a good idea for you to test them for your application first to make sure they do what you are expecting. I have learned not to trust them (not in any software, yet) and tend to think of them as unicorns. For your part: If your feature co...

Re: Exporting keyboard shortcut keys after updating

This has been bugging me for a while too.

1. The helpdesk file doesn't save them.
2. Exporting the environment by itself won't do it.
3. Exporting the layout doesn't do it either. :(

Re: Fixed Radius Circle?

After some experimentation with measuring partial arc locations a few years back I did find a technique that worked. Your mentioning best-fit to do this is right on par with how it works. 1. Set up your coordinate system and sync to it. 2. Create a nominal point at the origin. 3. Measure the arc as ...

Re: Min/ Max difference formula for measured point sets

Hi John, You would have to change the GetReportInfo line but this may do what you want. =================================================== Dim i Dim k Dim p(1 to 4) Dim out for i = 1 to 4 p(i) = GetReportInfo("POINT" & i, "3D", 3) next i for k = 1 to 3 if abs(p(k)) > abs(p(k+1)) then p(k+1) = abs(p...

Re: Combining multiple clouds for faster measurement

When measuring a cloud, from the measure cloud dialogue box you can go to the points tab and 'add a pick' and pick points all over the model (even points not on the original surface). After that you can hit, esc then create path and all the points are in one cloud at that point.

Re: Slot with Separate Position Tolerances

Look for bilateral position:
RIBBON>REPORT>BILATERAL POSITION

It looks like the symbol for position with a red bowtie under it. In the dialog box you are able to select the radio button for which axis you wish to evaluate.
