  • V4.0 BUG

    So I downloaded the 03-01-06 full version of PC-DMIS 4.0 and tried it out. I opened a program that I created in PC-DMIS 3.7MR3 and tried to run. I use iterative alignments(manual and DCC) to align. When I finished the manual points the probe took off. This is a problem that occurred in 3.6. I then saved the same program back to 3.7MR3 and the prompts between the manual re-measurements reappeared. I am finished with PC-DMIS 4.0 until this major glitch is resolved. I did call tech support on this(03-08-06) and spoke with an A.E.; they said they would look into it and call me back today(03-09-06). I am at home now and did not receive that call(perhaps they called after I left?).
    One would have ***umed that iterative alignments would have been proven out (not just "off-line", (the A.E. tried it while I was on the phone "off-line" and it worked)). Shame on WILCOX!
    I will keep in mind that it has not been "officially released" by BNS yet.

      I guess I won't be going to 4.0 too soon. Thanks for the trial run.

          Thank you!!!

          Thanks a ton!!!
          I thought about the CAP vs. my little "statement" I've used over the years here; just never got the butt moving to find an appropriate picture. YOU are my hero.

            James, I got hit with that one too, (not good when using a 0.5 dia probe). One way round it is to put in move points. A pain in the a#* I know but it worked ok
            If I have offended anyone with this post, I'd like to take this opportunity to say BOLLOCKS
            Dry your eyes Princess and man up.
