  • Can't find my part

    I haven't seen anyone else having this problem so maybe someone can help. My fixture got "Bumped" so I started my program in manual mode until I've got my one plane, one line, and one pint to do my alignment. Then I switch to DCC mode and it can't find my part.

    How do I get it to re-align the hits with the new alignment?

    I smell your problem in your alignment
    You will need to rid yourself of the "pint" and try using just a point instead.
    Maybe then your CMM won't have a problem finding its way to the part.

    LOL

    just had to do it !
    Which one gets ridden today? MPH vs MPG..tough choice, both are FUN

      Just a hunch

      Bob's humor aside, I suspect he's right. If a manual alignment doesn't relocate your part, then it wasn't properly locating your part to begin with. The program (as it was written) would only work for that one position. You didn't post it so we can't analyze it, but it was probably just working in machine coordinate for whatever axes or orienation was not fully defined with the part coordinate alignment. . .

        You were using a pint of beer? Try Whiskey, it is better than most things and makes these kind of problems easier to handle.

          I was going to recommend trying a quart instead but I can't handle my whiskey...

            Jokes aside, Don's probably right on here...
