Point Probing CAD File 1/2 Ball Error

Post by nick_vitelli » Fri Jul 19, 2019 3:07 pm

I am probing points on a cad file after the file is imported and aligned. I keep getting deviations of 1/2 by ball diameter of the probe.
No matter what probe I use the deviation is always 1/2 the ball.

What am I missing here.

Thanks
Nick

THis is certainly related to Probe Comp for individual measured point. Try measuring as Plane or enable Probe Comp for Point, please keep in mind settings for Probe Comp. If the measurement is along an axis, there are options to enable Probe Comp for X, Y or Z.
