  • Move/all

    I've been playing with the MOVE/ALL command and it's pretty slick. It combines a move/point with a probe rotation, however, I can't get it to work on my XCEL with PH10M but works fine on my Global Advantage with the TESASTAR. Anyone know why?

    controller wont support it... careful changing the jog box speed with a command like that in your program.

      +1...I had an Xcel before getting our new Global and it wouldn't work either. Nor would Fly Mode.

          I just type the code in "MOVE" tab "ALL" tab, then enter the xyz coordinates you want the probe to go to and select new probe rotation. The probe will move and rotate at the same time.

              so this is handy if you don't have the PHD 10 unit huh

                Obviously, it won't work if you don't have a motorized head. If that is what your asking.

                  No I mean if you have a phd10, so you really not saving much time doing MOVE ALL.

                    Another way to add a Move/All is to do a Move/Point followed by a tip rotation. Then with the cursor at the end of the tip command, click ‘insert’ on the tool bar, then ‘Move’/ ‘Move All’. Everything is filled in for you. Then delete the Move/Point and tip command (the preceding two lines). Keep in mind the coordinates in the Move/All are AFTER the tip rotation.

                        It only saves you time. Without it, you move, stop, rotate, move. With it, you rotate while you move (which is why it can be deadly).

                        I've never played with it, but think I might give it a try. I've always thought it'd be pretty cool (for tours and demonstrations, not for everyday use) if one could program it to keep the ruby tip stationary relative to the part and have movement in x,y,z when changing the head angle. Perhaps with a little playing around...

                          I use MOVEALL's a lot, a real time saver. Wich I had FLYMODE tho becuase that is another great time saver and it makes the CMM movement look so much smoother and keeps them from jerking when they go from one MOVEPOINT to another.

                              Yep, in order for me to feel comfortable using them, I'd feel like I needed to clear the part by quite a bit, thus eliminating any time saved because of the extra movement. Currently, I have no problem pulling back from a surface .2 inch, rotating and then moving to clear another face by .2 inch and going from there. I'd not try that with a move/all. I'd feel I'd need to move much farther from the part thus offsetting any time savings. Of course maybe that would change with use and I'd get more comfortable the more I used it.
