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.

Re: true position of a distance?

Like most things in Y14.5, these situations are confusing at first. Paragraph 7.4.5 begins the topic of "Noncircular Features of Size". Long story short, the way to evaluate the position of a 'slot' (in this case) is to find its center plane and calculate the position of that. (Fig. 7-31, and 7-33 i...

Re: CONE NOT PERPENDICULAR TO PLANE

Shallow cones are tough, not just in CMM Manager. I have found that CMM Manager does a better job with cones if you measure them as at least 3 circular sections. If this doesn't resolve your problem, you could try measuring the cone as slices of lines and create intersect points with the top surface...

Re: Solved- Running a Program - what really happens?

And...if you use "Verify" when you program on-line with cad make sure to go to... PREFERENCES > GENERAL > SIMULATE & VERIFY and turn OFF "Update Actual Feature" This will ensure that the ACTUALS WILL BE EQUAL TO THE NOMINALS while you are writing your program. This will keep your from possibly havin...

Re: CAD Conversion Module

1. Go to the CMM Manager download page and download your version. (don't run it, just save to a location on your pc)
2. Unzip the file.
3. Run "CadConverterInstaller_x64.exe"

Re: touch-offs are shanking out after tool retrieval from rack.

The tip correction plane has its own LOCATE procedure.

Hover over the plane in UCC Server and right click and select LOCATE. This should fix it.

Re: Contour G2

If you don't need scanning, there is an RDS adaptor that will hold a tp20 and allow CMM Manager to work just fine. We converted a scanning Calypso zeiss with a C99 controller to a touch trigger CMM Manager machine a few years back. On Zeiss website: RDS-Adapter plate/Renishaw probeTP20/TP6 Item No.:...
