    Dear all, please see the attached probe drg. How do I add this to my probe list so that I can calibrate it? It is a custom made probe.


    TIA.

    Go into the PC-DMIS directory in your hard drive and open a file called probe. This list all probes for when you build a probe file. Scroll down & find the closest disk probe. That appears to be what you want. Copy & paste at bottom of page & then remame. Edit parameters to match what you have.

            Copy that portion of the file, paste into the file and change the name and diameter and thickness.

              So...

              I dont need to change the cylinder, ribcount etc? I'm completely unfamiliar with this terminology.

                Just these should be good. I misled you earlier. I said diameter and thickness. I should have said hotspot and diameter.
