Re: Tip Calibration

This is usually caused by a loose stylus, but if your form error is good and you are getting similar oversize on two different assemblies, it isn't likely the issue in this case.

When you measure the sphere, do you get the expected diametrical and form results?

Re: Vision program not repeating

Pattern recognition is accessible through the Vision ribbon tab. It is an important tool for anything that doesn't repeat location precisely. This could be an initial alignment step (creating an origin for the start of a program) or on features that don't have precise location from the current refer...

Re: CALIBRATION BALL SETUP FOR STAR PROBE

You can use a star probe for your reference tip, but I wouldn't advise it. You only need (and can only have) one reference tip. It must be a spherical tip and ideally should be on a standard force module and be within suggested weight/length parameters for the module. The reference tip locates the c...

Re: Plane on round object

You cannot teach a circular plane with the Joystick radial button selected. It can be CAD taught by using the drop-down under the CAD teach and selecting two coplanar and concentric circles. You can also change the radial button to Define DCC, and you will then be able to enter in the nominal value ...

Re: 2MM ball tip calibration

Could be a few things. The stylus is could be bent or not screwed in all the way. These are the most likely. You can also check out the functionality of the module (this should be done after checking the stylus). Measure a ring gauge with 20 points or so. Create a form error graphical report by righ...

Re: Free Position Problem

Could be a couple of things. Check the Free Position alignment operation and make sure the "set origin" button is checked. Another strategy would be to: place your cursor in your program to the step after the 3-2-1 alignment go to the alignment ribbon tab select "Align Part" with the Align Part dial...

Re: Points from Cad

You can also teach the cloud for measurement (I cannot remember if you need to add those features to CAD first)
