Report position versus report distance

We are experiencing the following: When we report distance between a circle and the datum, which is a plane running parallel with the theoretical axis of the circle, we get over .005" difference than if we did report position of the same exact feature to the same exact datum. Disregarding the positi...

Re: Failed to generate MS Excel report file

Neither CMM-Manager nor Excel are running with elevated privileges... I tried launching a .xls from my desktop and the drive to ensure privileges are not changing depending on where the file is.

Re: 3DConnexion Support

I have tried tweaking the settings on both CMM-M and 3DConnexion to no avail. The only function I have been able to get out of the mouse is Zoom In/Out and the side hotkeys which work great! Any suggestions are appreciated! I know it will be hard to help without the product in hand so I completely u...

Mid plane of two lines

I have been noticing a measurement error and wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing this and found a solution different than mine. I am using 3.6 SP 2. If I measure the center of the part (an open slot) using two independent lines and form a mid plane from those lines I get a different distanc...

3DConnexion Support

Does anyone know if we can get 3Dconnexion SpaceMouse Compact working with CMM-M? I would LOVE to start using a 3D mouse with CMM-M and using hotkeys. The annoyance is - our modeling software is compatible with the SpaceMouse so when I jump between CMM-M and our modeling software I end up trying to ...

Re: Program Configurations?

... In your case, I believe, you have various versions of a product but you do not want to have various programs created. Just one program for all.... Exactly!! I had the suspicion Nikon's Script Engine would support this but all of the threads I read were not explicitly describing it like I imagin...

Re: Program Configurations?

I do not know if there is a function within CMM-Manager that exists. That is what I am trying to ask: is there a function in CMM-Manager that operates similar to a SolidWorks configuration function? Second question: Can I achieve that function using VB Script? Sorry my first post was not clear. I te...

Program Configurations?

Bottom line: Is it possible with VB and CMM-M to achieve a SolidWorks configuration mindset under 1 .cmp? I've never programmed in VB but just completed a Java based programming pre-req. for a MEng class I will be taking in the Spring so if this is the best route I would like to start working on it ...

Re: Failed to generate MS Excel report file

JVanderveen, Out of curiosity, do you use any macros made by other people/companies? For example, I have Kutools for Excel and RDBMerge Utility. I have had Kutools for about 6 months now and RDBMerge for over a year and I am just theorizing that excel had a background update/patch that could be inte...
