Re: Min/ Max difference formula for measured point sets

This can be done without VB scripting or with VB scripting. The non-VB route is easier of course. non-VB: Measure the series of points as a cloud Do a two point construction looking for High/Low points from a cloud (this will take some strategy in finding features or machine axis that are furthers/c...

Re: RPS Alignment

I don't usually do this, especially if there are inexperienced operators that will be running the part. If material gets between the holding fixture and the part, that will of course change the measurement. If you have a motorized probe head, I suggest articulating the head to A90 and physically tou...

Re: RPS Alignment

Typically, it is just one point per target area.

Re: Running programs on different CMMs

Not at all. The paths are developed from the stylus tip, so you can use similar configurations as long as the paths will still function for you. Your like process will be just to open the project, change the probe assembly, perform an Align Part, Save, Press play. I would suggest backing up the file...

Re: PHC10-3Plus Error by loading CAD

I imagine the CAD loading is just a coincidence. It sounds like we are just losing communication with the Probe head. I would check the PHC and make sure there aren't any loose cables and that it is not in an error state. You could also try sending helpdesk a comm log. Instructions on how to generat...

Re: "Z Axis" Randomly Gets Wonky in the Middle of Program.

I can't think of many things. I think the most likely candidate is the alignment. Can you zip and attach or send me the project file so I can look at it here.

Is the issue occurring in other programs?

Re: Running programs on different CMMs

Not very close at all. You may need to perform an Align Part on the programs when you bring them into the new environment, but I wouldn't expect you to need to do more than that. This is provided that the probing is similar enough. You wouldn't want a 7.5° increment head and a 5° increment head, but...

Re: Report while looping

It is just how it has always been. We index the file with (Root+suffix).
