  • Probe head rotation on an autocircle

    I have a cylinder with an grove around it. I want to measure the complete groove but there are features on the cylinder that prevent me to slide a disc probe in there. The largest size disc probe I have is 18mm.

    I have a PH10T probe head. I am thinking it's possible to use measure the thing using A90 angles. If I add all the A90B angles in the probe setup, I can use this with "move all" and use a ruby ball probe instead?
    I used to be high on life but I built up a tolerance.

    Well I wouldn't use the "move all" personally...but it is certainly possible to create separate vector points and construct a cyl from them.

      I have had the same situation w/ circles and grooves and used points then constructed
      a circle, worked fine.

        Ditto of Mike N, but I would use Surface Points, and a Rmeas point on top or bottum of cylinder.
