  • HELP!! Lost my tip file

    I am using pcdmis version 3.5 on a b&S xcel. I made a error apparently and have lost my T1A0B0 file from my probe tip selection. It was the only one I had on the list of tips. How do I get it back/restore it? Without it I can't do anything with this CMM. I am self teaching PCDMIS I have programmed CMM's b4 but not in this particular language/software. Help please anyone!!

    Thanks for the help everyone!! I fixed the problem. Wow what a great bunch of people you all are!!! Thanks so much

    Did you lose just the tip rotation (T1A0B0) or the whole probe file? If you lost the probe file you can always build a new one and replace the old one in the programs as you run them. This is very time consuming though.

      Is your tip really gone? If so all you can do is rebuild. But, make sure that your cursor is below the a0b0 line. I did that a few times myself.

        Also, it's possible that you changed your probe's Search Paths to look in a directory where the probe definition files don't exist. I did that last week.

          Is the Prompt tip is not defined?
          If so try this
          Ctrl Alt P
          then select mark used tab
          then OK

                    Once you have created all your tips, wrist angles and have ran your tip calibration. Copy and save your tips and tip results to a folder named "Tips Backup" and save it somewhere. Any time you add a wrist angle or add a new tip and re-run your tip calibration, copy and paste these new results over your old in this folder. If you loose any tips or wrist angles, you can quickly copy and paste these saved ones in your back up folder. A new calibration will be needed, but you won't need to re-create any of your tips.

                      Again, I stress.

                      Training is worth it.

                      Add the tips back in. Don't forget to practice as you have time.

                        In addition to the comments already given, you may want to go through a very basic tutorial given in one of the beginning sections of the help file (see Getting Started: A Simple Tutorial). It walks you through probe creation. For more in-depth information, select Insert | Hardware Definition | Probe and press F1. The "Defining Probes" topic appears and discusses that dialog in detail.

                        Regarding, defining Search Paths, select Edit | Preferences | Set Search Paths. Press F1 on the resulting dialog to see how to set these up.

                        Also, there's a handy probe wizard that might be useful for beginners. Right-click on the Toolbar area, select Add-Ins. The Add-Ins toolbar appears. Click the ProbeWizard icon. It helps you create a probe.
