  • one more thing.....

    I cannot make the fly mode work with my BnS Global Image 121510. We have a Ziess controller and am able to use the SP600 continuous contact probe, I thought this controller has the ability to use fly mode. we are using ver 3.7 MR2. In the settings editor I was told to change the setting in the Zeiss controller area and "fly mode is..."to 1 for this. This didn't do the job, any one have the answer?

    Your absolutely sure you have Zeiss controller connected to your Global Image? I don't rememeber what controller attaches to the Global Image, but that is what would designate it as an Image.

    Out of curiosity, what Zeiss controller do you have.....

      I can't tell you exactly which controller we have, but the people who installed it told me it's a Zeiss controller. It's the same controller I had with another BnS Global machine back in Michigan. It's a stand alone gray colored on wheels with two keys one for "Control" and one for "Mode" on the left side of the angled control panel. It has a large round power switch on the front of it. A large emergency stop bottun on the right side of the angled control panel in front. Every one I speak to here about this acts like "Fly Mode" is this dangerous unknown entity that will mean certain death if you attempt to use it. I have used it with a lot of success in Michigan, but here it's almost like you're talking about the devil. I just want to trim some time off of some of the programs we are forced to use here that have way too much "air time".

        Not Zeiss, Leitz!!!

        I believe you have a Leitz controller, not a Zeiss controller. This does support fly mode.

          Fly Mode

          I've seen two settings in the settings editor for this- under "Leitz" there is "HasFlyMode", and under "Options" there is "FlyMode". Check both - I suppose they should both have "1" or "true", but I'm not sure.

            I've never heard any bad tings about fly mode around here, who have you talked to? I use it all of the time, no problems. Except no matter what radius you put in it always travels the same arch (has that been fixed yet? I am 3.7 and it is still broken/never worked). You need to be mindful of small features and what size prehit and retract you use as well but that is no biggie. It is probably a Leitz like Don said and it is my understanding that not all controls support fly mode.

              Craiger Ny I know! Me too, I have also used it with no problems EVER! That's why I want to get it working here. But around here, the company who trained two others here have told them "it's just trouble waiting to happen." They are the same people who installed the CMM's and did some very elementary training of these two programmers, who've warned them of this. I cannot seem to get through to these two about just plain old terrible programming techniques they've been taught.

                  Denver is The Best!!!

                  Things are really good here, at least where I am and the company I work for. Lots of OT, as much as I want. Seriously! You know me and OT. Gotta have it! Things have turned around 180 degrees in the last 5 months for me here and it really is as I hoped it would be. I do need to some how get through to a couple of people here that seem to think using CAD is just nothing but bells and whistles and that their third party instruction/training they received ONCE is better than what most of us in Michigan have received. They do not ever use iterative alignments, they call it "some sort of best fit", and don't know any of the rules for using it. They don't know how to use CAD = Part alignments. They would rather do EVERYTHING without CAD. I have told them about this board and the indy board and they have yet to even try to ask a question. They already know it all. I have gotten past their shortcomings. I used to get upset because they wouldn't try to learn anything. I have since given up and now life is good for me. I used to take it personally, but I have stopped and as I said life is good now. Making lots of money!!! Still fighting for the wife's freedom with/from the state of Texas, but there's light at the end of that tunnel too.
