So upon Hexagons yearly calibration completeion we started the auto cal program we have always used to calibrate all the tips in our probe rack with DCC+DCC. However when it got to the third tip 2mm x 100 mm, as it was scanning the tips at T1A7.5B-180 it would only scan about half of the sphere and when it proceeded to go up and over the top of the spehere it was mashing the tip into the sphere so hard that it would deflect flipping the tip off or trip the overload. We then went to tip edit and pressed measure and said the sphere has moved even though DCC+DCC isfinding the sphere before it starts the calibration. it still proceeded to mash the tip. It appears as though the touch force is not reading correctly and continues to drive it into the sphere. All lengths and settings on tips are correct and everything is as it was before, however, it keeps burying the tip module until it trips as it scans. We skipped the 7.5 degree tips on this probe and everything else ran fine. We did figre out a work around to at least create the tip deflection error in the results for that tip. We simply would skip that scan n the calibration and continue on to the next error each timewhen the tip cal was complete it would give you the error message that your tip cal is out would you like to rerun the tip, say yes to it and the tip would run fine after that. This only happened to about 3 tips between B-180 to B-90. I have ran a verification program on all the tips at multiple anglesonknown good parts and the recordings and results are correct now, just unclear as to why it was pushing so hard. Is the path defined by the calibration program based upon where the sphere prehit points ssay the sphere is located and hardlined movement regardless of tip pressure? I don't believe this to be true this is why I believe my Scan module is fubar. Any ideas would appreciate the help.
