Re: Hit patterns for flat clouds and planes

I would look at the Along Edge option in 3D features like Plane and Cloud. This option creates points along the edge boundary of CAD surface with specified edge margin and point density. With all images shown above it also results in shorter path.

Re: CALIBRATING THE CALIBRATION SPHERE?

After reading CMM Guru's comments and re-reading your original post, I realize that I have answered your question in the wrong context. Next time I will read more carefully :lol:

Anyway, I hope my answer gave some extra insight either way.

Re: CALIBRATING THE CALIBRATION SPHERE?

I cannot give advice on how often... we see users calibrate anywhere from everyday to once a week to once a month. Every once in a while we have people contact us with complaint that system is not accurate and can see that last tip calibration was 2 years ago :lol: :lol: Anyway, you can choose a fre...

Re: Surface Profile Reporting Datum Configuration

Yes... I am familiar with this "error" I use Current Ref Frame option exclusively and suggest you do the same for now. I think maybe we fixed the same issue that you mention with Position pretty recently, odd that we missed Profile at that time. Sorry about that. Anyway, I see we have notes about th...

Re: True position out put

Nominal Position is only calculated using Nominal values entered on first tab of True Position Dialog. You can (by clicking Feature Rpt Checkbox) also turn on XYZ deviation independent to True Position. These two Nominal inputs and corresponding Report outputs are highlighted in ORANGE and YELLOW in...

Re: Groove with Circular Plane

Use a bunch of Edge Point measurements then best-fit construction to create slot. During best-fit construction you can specify work-plane.

Re: Groove with Circular Plane

Do you want to measure the bottom surface of a Face Groove on a Flat Circular feature? If so, you can just measure a single point at bottom and reference to top plane or you can use Circular Plane. CAD Teach Circular Plane allows you to pick plane directly or pick 2 concentric 2D circles to establis...
