  • Again about "addition of a new stylus"

    I would like to add 0.8BY35mm stylus which is not in the drop down list.

    I found
    a PROBE.DAT file in the directory of "/C:\Program Files\Hexagon\PC-DMIS 2017 R1 64-bit", and
    a USRPROBE.DAT file in the directory of "C:\ProgramData\Hexagon\PC-DMIS\2017 R1\nccontrollers\SIEMENS"
    No other "PROBE.DAT" and "USRPROBE.DAT" is under C:\

    The manual said the locations suppose to be
    C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Hexagon\PC-DMIS\<version> for PROBE.DAT
    C:\ProgramData\Hexagon\PC-DMIS\<version> for USRPROBE.DAT.

    And I noticed that the TIPs and EXTENSIONs in the PROBE.DAT and USEPROBE.DAT are different from the Probe drop-down list.
    Even I copied the USRPROBE.DAT file to the location where the manual mentions, it seems my PC-DMIS does not recolonize the USRPROBE.DAT.

    Please give me a guide how to add the stylus

    Thank you.

    What version of PC-DMIS are you using and are you using the custom probe utility?

      I have 2017R1 and 2018R2.
      That is also one of my questions. I couldn't find the "custom probe builder utility" under EDIT/PREFERENCE menu.
      Does it depend on the license to get the capability?
