    It's pretty simple, really.

    Measure the alignment features
    Make the alignment
    INSERT ~ ALIGNMENT ~ SAVE
    Enter the name you wish to use
    RECALL the alignment in any program you want to use with the drop-down window at the top (it's to the right of the saved view drop-down).

      Very simple. I use it all the time for CMM holding fixtures.

        Oh, you WILL need to make sure that your SEARCH PATH for RECALL DIRECTORY is set to 'search current directory'.

          How do you call it ? and what is the reason to be used in another program? it means that will shift the part to that saved alignment coordinate Space from another program? ( in addition to make and use, I need to know these stuf like what is going on when we do that in another part program)

          thank you for help and response

            The biggest reason for external alignments (IMO)_ is that you can align a fixture ONCE, then run any number of DIFFERENT programs on it, all using the same alignment, and each of those programs does NOT have to align the fixture. Also, it will keep you from screwing up your program IF you have to adjust the alignment for any reason, no worry about "UPDATE PROGRAM TO NEW ALIGNMENT" crap that comes up. This method CAN be done in a different way, by using MARKED SETS, but you get HUGE programs. By having a seperate fixture alignment program, you align it once, then have programs that fo different 'objectives' for the part, for example:
            1) Regular full check
            2) Spc only check
            3) Trim development checks
            4) Hole position checks
            5) etc.

            Once you do your alignmetn, either iterative (not usually on a fixture) or 3-2-1 CAD=PART alignment, you simply save it to an exteranl file

            Make a new program, save it in the same directory as the alignment program (see this link for directory structure http://cmmprogrammer.19.forumer.com/...pic.php?t=100), then use the drop-down and select the file you just saved. You can now start this new program right in DCC mode and start checking the part.

              Thank you Soooooo muc, It is getting more clear to me know. Really helpfull Just a question, If I remove the fixture and install it again after days, I need to manually align the fixture and then DCC, I think I should run the fixture program and go through manual and DCC program. then Exit and Open another program that calls FIxture program, then RUn to measure profile ( for instance)..... Am I right? So it means, the Recalled Saved Alignment is Valid untill we have not Moved the Fixture on CMM Table ( am I correct)?

                Thats right .. Once you run the program for your alignment and save it you can keep on going till you move the fixture then it will need run again so it saves the new location

                  YEP, once you either HOME the machine or MOVE the fixture, you need to re-run the alignment program. HOWEVER, if you only re-home the machine, you should NOT have to run the MANUAL portion of the alignment program, just the DCC portion (time saver). If you MOVE the fixture, you will have to run both MANUAL and DCC alignments.
