I am running into some problems here. I have four points that I created with the autofeature. I have taken my part and did a DCC alignment and ran the part. The part has a bunch of CAD points that I picked and am dimensioning.

I have a slot that is 24.4788 deg in the Y from the bottom of the part. I have taken the points, two on each side of the slot at about the same Y and Z distance. The problem I am running into is that in my X direction, the points are coming out different each time. I have my vectors set so the probe comes straight in at the X direction and takes the hit.

On one side of the slot, the dimensions are telling me that the slot is off in the X-. on the other side of the slot the points are telling the slot is off in the X+. I know this to be wrong because I have measured the slot width with gage blocks.

I have used 2 different tips, one a 1.5mm and the other a 4mm. With the 4mm tip my dimensions are as stated. With the 1.5mm tip, my dimensions are showing to be out the same way on both sides of the slot but the numbers are totally different than with the 4mm tip.

I have calibrated both tips numerous times and get the same results.

Would the vectors have something to with this or maybe probe compisater?

Each probe does have an angle change. It is the same for both tips.

Any help would be great.

Thanks
