  • Manual to DCC Alignment

    I'm a PCDMIS rookie with a simple question. How do you temporarily convert a manual alignment to DCC for parts 2,3,4......? Obviously I am putting the parts in the same location on the CMM but cannot use the alignment from part 1 for the others.

    There's no converting the alignment will be active DCC or manual.

    Perhaps I'm missing the question?

      Sounds like you want to use a loop in the program.

        bpennings,

        Do you have your parts fixtured (held) in the same place each time?
        If so, then what you can do is have an initial manual alignment, followed by a dcc alignment, using an input comment as below; (Hope this helps)

        Regards,

        C6 =COMMENT/YESNO,YES,Skip the Manual Alignment?
        IF_GOTO/C6.INPUT=="YES",GOTO = SKIP_ALIGN


        Insert manual alignment here.


        |Man_Align|=ALIGNMENT/START,RECALL:STARTUP, LIST= YES
        ALIGNMENT/ITERATE
        PNT TARGET RAD = 5, START LABEL = , FIXTURE TOL = 0, ERROR LABEL =
        MEAS ALL FEAT = NO ,MAX ITERATIONS = 99 ,LEVEL AXIS=YAXIS ,ROTATE AXIS=XAXIS ,ORIGIN AXIS=ZAXIS
        LEVEL = PT_A1,PT_A2,PT_A3,,
        ROTATE = PT_A2,PT_A3,,
        ORIGIN = PT_A2,,
        ALIGNMENT/END
        SKIP_ALIGN =LABEL/


        Continue with dcc alignment here.

        COMMENT/OPER,NO,Caution; DCC alignment and measurement will now commence.
        ,Move probe to upper right hand area of part.
        ,Press ok to proceed.
        ,
        MODE/DCC

          Wouldn't you want to save the manual alignment externally when you run the manual alignment? and then immediately recall the external manual alignment and the beginning of the DCC part. Everything else looks good.

            You can do what Bob said, what Pete said, what J said or you could measure once and unmark the manual alignments. I suppose it all depends on who is running the CMM and what the programmers preference is. Will the prg be run by operators?

                    Whether you skip it or not. Have to have both manual and DCC align. in your program.

                    (unless you save it externally).
