  • Added Tip Command after qualification

    V3.7 MR2 - XP SP2

    Open program.
    Qualify all probes used.
    Last probe tip angle qualified gets added after load probe automatically.
    Is a problem because it's the wrong tip at that point in the program.
    Seems to be very consistant with certain programs, on certain machines.

    Is this a knon bug or ?

    I'm confused, can't you just change the angle command to the angle you want?

    Or is your problem that it is skipping the angle change command that puts it at the correct angle? Mine does this occasionally.

      Problem is some users don't notice the added tip command
      and when they go to run the program it crashes because
      this tip command was added out of place by PC D-MIS.

      Actually I have seen it for some time,
      I got into the habit of always checking for it and deleteing it.

      This is why I'm assuming it's a bug,
      but am wondering if it may be a setting some place.

        Ah, I see now. Can you elaborate on how you are going about calibrating?

        Do you open the program in operator mode or in program mode? I am guessing program mode.

        Once open, how do you proceed to calibrate?

          Program mode

          Place cursor on Loadprobe line
          Hit F-9
          In probe utilities panel- Mark used
          Measure
          Measure

            RussL,

            Don't know if it is an option with you, are you able to upgrade to v3.7mr3??

            I calibrate my probe tips pretty much the same way as you do, and don't have a problem. I'm using v3.7mr3.

            Regards,

              I too have done as you do in 3.7mr3 and have not had problems.

              What I do now though is write the probe calibration into the program. The operator is asked if they want to calibrate tips. If yes, the operator is prompted to load the tip then take the first hit on the sphere. It will then run through and cal. all tip angles used in the program (plus A0B0 if it isn't used). Then, if there is another tip used in the program, it will ask for that and calibrate all tip angles used for that tip (plus A0B0 if it isn't used) Then, it prompts the operator to look at the cal. results and make a decision about if they are acceptable. If not, it tells them to start over and ends the program. If they are acceptable, it begins the program where manual hits are to be taken on the part.

              If they answer no to the question about wanting to calibrate, it will jump right to the part of the program where manual hits are taken on the part.

              I have never had a problem with it written in this way. It also makes me feel more comfortable knowing the tips were calibrated because when they are calibrated the results are printed on the results page for the part they were calibrated before running.

                Thanks for the replies.

                We were waiting for 4.2 to come out to upgrade.
                We know it has some features that will help us alot and we will definitely want to install it, even though it means learning a new set of work arounds.
