    That’s what I do also Andrew. I been working on some testing this afternoon and I am leaning towards the block was bad. I just recalibrated, measured several other Ø's the same way as my program and all 3 are within .00002" of each other. The gremlins must be around this week. That is all I can figure.

    I haven't had too much trouble measuring circles with different probe angles. I take individual points, right on the centerline, and at the exact Z levels. Then create the circle from the 4 points

    Thanks for the help. I didn't realize my pictures were to big. Got it now.

    Thanks

    Stop drooling back to the question

    It depends on your accuracy requirements. It would seem to me that since each different probe orientation would have a different effective tip radius (and therefore compensation), you would need to comp each touch and then only do a BF of all of the points.

    If you do that then you would need fairly accurate vectors to the ACTUAL surface. This then means that you should pre-measure the bore and establish the actual centerline and then go through again for your final check.

    This would apply also if you are using a star probe(which i despise).

    ps.
    Dale send me an email. I haven't talked with you since you left AMP

    by the way, how do you get the picture to show up by you names?

    Thanks Mike,

    I am doing most of that, I didn't use 3 levels because the thickness is small. I only have about .750" thickness so I took points on each side of surface.

    thanks

    i was told in training to alwaysuse BFRE when constructing circles from points. i have used both and have seen no difference in the results though.

    I cant tell you about the Bf or BFRE but.....I wouldn't suggest using multiple tip angles if it is possible to probe greater than 180 of a circle with one probe position. Also if it is absolutely necessary to use several probe angles I would take individual surface points with sample hits to get proper vector compensation then construct the circles or cyl's. It has been stated before that you should have at minimum 3 levels for your cyl's to avoid any trouble with vectors repeating for the constructed cyl feature.

    BF vs. BFRE

    Hi All,

    Can anyone tell me the best time to use BF or BFRE on circles. I am using points to make circles then cylinders. I am also usings mutiple wrist angles. Does this make a difference?

    Thanks
    Dale
