  • Changing Qual Sphere positions

    I added a second MCR20 to the machine last week.
    Changed my Master Tip to a 4x10mm A0B0 only(slot 1).
    Ran the auto-cal routine so all eight modules correlate to each other.
    Here's where I'm confusing myself.
    The Qual sphere is at 0,0,1. I want to add a L-shape tip (built on a 5-way).
    The L-shape has previously been calibrated on a sphere at 0,-1,0.
    Should I start with the sphere at 0,0,1. Run the master tip as moved=yes, run the A0B0 tip on the L-shape moved=no, then move the cal sphere to 0,-1,0 and run the L-shape A0B0 again this time as moved=yes followed by the other angles as moved=no? or should I start with the cal sphere at 0,-1,0 and run the master tip as moved=yes followed by the L-shape probe and all angles as moved =no as I would do with all straight builds?
    It's the moving the sphere that has me questioning myself.
    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    If you physically moved the sphere, you need to calibrate your master tip at A0B0 first , say Yes, then other tips including the L shaped say No. If you did not move the sphere, and if you did not shut down the controller since your last calibration then you can simply calibrate the L shaped tip on the aphere and say No.

      If I understand correctly this is right

        I don't see it stated explicitly, so just for clarity. When you change the sphere from +Z to -Y, or vice versa, you must go back to your master tip, and answer YES to the sphere moved question.

        It doesn't matter at all which orientation you start with.

          that's right. You will have to modify the angle of the hits, to ensure that the tip will not collide with the stem. Having a different vector sphere, the same steps applies as moving the sphere to a new location.

            I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
