Hard Probe Scanning is supported on Caliper Designs PCI card and Insight Metrology IM-USB interfacce. To enable scanning, you must add "SCAN_RESOLUTION" entry into Driver\configuration file located here:

C:\ProgramData\Nikon\CMM-Manager 3.5 SP1\Driver

Open either IQSC100.ini (for Insight IM-USB) or CaliperPCI.ini (for Caliper PCI) and add the line

Code: Select all

SCAN_RESOLUTION 1.0        //hard probe scan resolution in mm
Of course you can change the scan resolution to specify the actual density of points captured during Hard Probe Scanning.

Note: The "Hard Probe" option must be selected in Probe Assembly dialog in order to enable Scanning / Hard Probe functionality. To measure with Hard Probe just select Measure Cloud from Blue measurement toolbar and choose Scan vs. Trigger option in measurement dialog.

Note: A Foot Switch or any normally closed switch must be wired inline with current Touch Probe to enable Scanning. See manufacture for details on switch.

Hi, is this something that can be done with a B&S Manbox setup?
