    With good information you could get better feed back!

    With what I can see; measure plane, plane create intersect line. Measure plane create intersect line, plane - plane. Measure plane create plane - plane intersect line. Create center line between lines. Create center point, center line to plane.

    Now you should be able to align to plane line intersect point.

                As for the points/per, that's up to you, I guess. I don't have a scanning head, I'm TTP scanning. For "tight" areas (high rate of change), I will go 0.25mm between hits, open areas (low rate of change) I will go to 1 or 1.5 or 2 for the spacing, for what appear to be flats, I will crank it as high as 5.

                    Small probe (1mm or less) and a tight spacing, like 10 per mm if you are using a scanning head. Go even smaller if you have a smaller probe. Now, as we all know, NOTHING in this world is perfect. If your head and probe are not absolutely perfectly straight and square, then you will have to break it up into smaller scan sections so you can use a probe angle to ensure that you don't shank out. As an example, on a square block, use A15,B45 to do the "left" and "rear" sides, then use A15,B-135 to do the "front" and "right" faces. Sorry I can't get any more detailed for a scanning hear since I don't have one, all I can do is pass on my tricks for the TTP scanning.

                        ok. I use to program the OGP vision scope, and as far as I remember when you do a 3-2-1 alignment, one would have to select a plane, and 2 lines, then...

                        I was wondering if anyone could tell me how PC-DMIS views a plane to plane dimension. What my boss would like to know is when you level and...
