  • 90 Degree Probe Tip

    How can one utilize a 90 degree Probe Tip and calibrate. It would be like having only one tip attached to the star Probe Body at 90 degrees with the other 4 tips removed from the star probe body.


    Help!!!!!!!! Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks Gary

    I take it you cannot get to the feature with a A90B0 or with the other styli on the probe body.

      That is exactly the way to build the probe.

      Extension
      Star tip 4 or 5 way
      tip in one position
      leave the other positions empty

      Should calibrate just fine.

      Attached is a copy of one of mine. HTH

          I know things are different over there, but here we only have one "right" and we also have a "front" you seem to be missing. But it is a good idea to make yourself a diagram of your star probe and label the tips, especially if you will be rotating the wrist.

            You are RIGHT Wes , but it is 00:15AM here.

            From the front side of the machine : (Vertical Arm-Bridge Type CMM)

            1-> DOWN
            2-> RIGHT
            3-> BACK
            4-> LEFT
            5-> FRONT

              Most important tip of the day was Wes's tip on making yourself a diagram.
              I did this thankfully, with our star probe--helped tremendously when I had to rotate to 4 different angles. Even then I was upside down trying to figure out what tip was what......

                  You are very welcome, but I would rather be a wizard than a God. LOL Nothing against anyone's God. I just don't think I am up to shouldering all that responsibility.

                    You just want to be Gandalf. Wand envy thing.
                    When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.

                      Or Merlin,
                      or Chrestomanci,
                      or Prospero,
                      or Tim the Enchanter,
                      or any one of many.
                      But not that phony from Kansas with the big balloon. I may be a lot of things, but a "pretender" is not one of them.
                      And not Randall Flagg, because I am just not *that* evil.

                      And it is not wand envy, but rather a poor coping strategy for dealing with modern civilization thru voluntary indulgence in escapist daydreams fueled by film and fiction.
