  • Manual TTP Scan

    I am still new with Pc-Dimas and I am trying to do a manual scan, but when I go to the Insert-Scan drop down menu all scaning methods are listed grey, accept the last segment from circle and down. What do I have to do to make the other options available. I am running ver 4.0. on Zeiss eclipse.

    What version of Pcdmis do you have and what classification?

    I have V3.7 MR3 CAD++

    If you have just the very basic classification of Pcdmis, scanning may not be part of it.

      Did you switch to manual mode first. My option only comes up if I take it out of dcc mode
      if you had soap on a rope it would be tied to yer ankle

        You have to have DCC off before you can do your manual TTP Scan
        I used to be high on life but I built up a tolerance.

          Ok. I got it going in manual mode, but now I am getting error msg. "Hit taken outside tolerance zone.Distance=10" Even try it on surfaces I know they are ok, still the same error.

            We have recently purchased a manual CMM with PC-DMIS CAD. When we try using the manual scan the numbers will not repeat. Anyone have any ideas?
