  • Restart programme

    During a programme,if the point you are measuring is out of position to the extent that you need to adjust the TARGET X,Y or Z to enable the part to be measured,why do you then have to go back to the start of the programme because if you do a partial execution you only recieve the data from that point onwards.is there away of adjusting the target or proceding without changing the target to allow you to aquired all the data from the programme.
    It's only a mistake if somebody else finds it!

      Here is a way around that:

      When you get the error, stopping the machine because the feature is too far away from nominal, simply hit ALT-X to go into manual mode and manually measure the feature (Probably a hole or a slot, right?). When you are done taking all the hits, Pcdmis will then prompt you if you want to update the targets with the actuals, tell it YES, then it will sit and wait for you to hit ALT-Z and it will go back into DCC mode and continue the program.

              Why not just use the "Find Hole" option ?

                Oh, one thing, I think there is a WARNING setting or an F5 setting that will control if you get a prompt fo updating targets to the new actual data or not. As a matter of fact, I am checking a part right now that has a little fixture interference (it will get cleared) and until it gets cleared (milled) I get a trigger for a trim point and right now I am NOT getting the question about updating the targets, but I remember turning it off for a job a couple months ago. Still, unless you forget to do so, you can still go back and MANUALLY change the targets after you run the current part, or, just keep doing the ALT-X and ALT-Z until the idiots on the floor get the part right!
