Setup UCCserver Client Tool Environment

Post by CrashN8 » Tue Nov 26, 2019 5:45 pm

For legacy UCC Direct users upgrading to UCC DIrect 2.0
Launch CMM-Manager and go the System Tab > Machine Setup and write down the Machine Configuration Filename for later use.

1. Launch UCCserver and set the 'ClientToolEnvironment' active. (right mouse click menu option)

WARNING: If ClientToolEnvironment and Example do not exist, STOP -
and contact Nikon support for instructions.

2. Restart UCCserver, and "edit" the "ClientToolEnvironment" machine. (right mouse click menu option)

Note: UCCserver must be launched using the '-Advanced' option

  • Select the machine file to use for this environment. This should be the file that UCCassist generated when the machine was commissioned. Also,

    For Legacy UCC Direct, this is the filename that is displayed in the UCC legacy driver machine setup dialog’s controller tab and was found earlier. Using this name (Micro4S3 in this example), browse to (example) c:\Program Files (x86)\Renishaw\UCC\Machine\Micro4S3\Micro4S3.ini
  • Select the head type to use for this environment. Note: Select 'Other' for an external PHC10 connected to the host PC, or Manual Probes.

3. Switch to the 'Machine' tab in UCCserver and check the available tools and components.

If the ClientTool tool and ClientTool component do not exist you must import the missing information as follows:
  • Contact your dealer or Nikon support for the ClientToolEnvironment_TansferEquipment_ClientTool.tzp file.
  • Save this file to an accessible location on your PC.
  • Right-click on the ClientToolEnvironment and select 'Import Equipment', browse to this file and select it to import.
