  • machine interface setup

    Hello all,

    Tech support wasnt much help on this....hoping that someone here might see what is going on. We are running a few capability studies for a customer using thier programs. The problem is they have thier machines setup up diffrently. Supposedly they are setting up thier machines like this because they used to run Tudors, and dont want to update programs. Attached is a PDF of thier setup, the problem is that when I do this, the probe will not follow the probe head orientation.

    The only thing you should have to do is figure out what the 'correct' probe angles will be for YOUR machine, just ignore that (unless it is messing up your OTHER programs) and change the angles in the program to match what is really needed. Changing those setting now will not do a thing for you for the programs you are trying to run. Those are basically 'set-up' information so that everything will show correctly on the screen when you are starting a new program.

      That's what I thought. Down the road, we are going to write programs for them and he contends that I have to have these settings on for the program to work there.

        Nope, those setting are ONLY for 'looks' in a brand new program. Unless you are going to tear down YOUR machine and set it up exactly like his, changing those settings will do nothing for you. In fact, the only time they are really important is if you are doing ALL your work in offline mode.

        BUT, those settings are for YOUR machine and are only for 'set up' and for 'looks'. If they are wrong, you will have a problem doing initial probe calibrations, it will think it is someplace esle than it really is. So, I guess that is the only function it really is important for. But for the program, not at all, unless you are offline.
