  • Angle Question

    I have a program (that has not been modified in over a year) that uses a star probe.While running the program, 3 of 4 angles constructed from cylinders suddenly began reporting out of spec even on a previously measured "good" part. I have replaced both probes and qualified the tips and cleaned the part. I have also made sure that the probe is not shanking while measuring any of the holes. Does anyone have any ideas about what could be wrong?

    The changes in the angles varied between .5 - 2 degrees
    There have been no software changes

    Head - Using a SP600M
    Software - PC-Dmis CAD++ 3.5 MR2
    Machine - Brown & Sharpe Global
