    No, if what I think you mean, no. HOWEVER, if you set it to 3 surface sample hits and get the raw vector CLOSE, you can put the probe in the hole, click on READ POS, then click on create.
    And, you can activate re-measure and it will remeasure the hole based on the first try.

It would be useful for quick pickups, or for the rough alignment using circles. PC-DMIS doesn't do that, does it?

    Yep. It's called auto circle and is found on the auto features toolbar, assuming that is that you have either CAD or CAD++, not sure if it comes with PRO

    Auto circle feature

    In previous life, I got used to a lot of Tarus functions, such as the ability to move stylus into a circle, hit a command, and the probe would move to take hits inside the circle and create the circle where it was. Obviously, the moves would be perpendicular to the hole cylinder, or planar to the top of the circle, but it would give a very close reading to where the hole or circle actually was. I would always re-run the pickup again, this time using the nominals from the first run and the location would be nearly perfect.

    Does PC-DMIS have anything that works similarly, making the auto-moves to pick up the hole? Has anyone ever programmed something like that?
