  • Scan

    I been practicing off and on to scan and use it to my advantage. Using CAD on some scans and some I do not have a CAD. I was giving a bearing race, so I created a few scans using circles and it worked out fine, now my boss wants the flatness of a plane. So my question is how can I measure a Z-Plane that's about .125 wide around the top of the bearing race. It's laying flat on my sine plate and the plane I want to measure is parallel to the sine plate and about 5 inched in diameter x .125 wide. Thanks

    What I like to do is FreeForm.

    click your path, don't put your points to far apart. Once your done choosing your points. click on that >> button

    Then click generate and then ADD Path, and create. Don't forget to set your settings in the Advanced Tab

      why not just create a plane on the cad model where you are going to measure and then utilize the Flatness dimension?

        I want to take a large amount of points.

      Think that there is a radial scan plane option in Auto Plane, under the Measurement Strategy Editor, assuming you have a fairly recent version. Same place as Kirby's solution. Don't remember if it's stitch or analogue scan.

        you can do a auto plane but choose radial pattern RADIAL PLANE SCAN Capture.JPG

          That's for TTP one hit at a time are does it scan because I'm using for all my scans a SP600 probe head

          Autoplane using Adaptive Plane Circle Scan as the measurement strategy. Use one ring at the diameter you need.

          It's basically like Michael said, but the rotary part isn't needed. The measurement strategy will define the path.

            Being I align the part with a TP200 and the swap to a scan head SP600 will this Adaptive Plane Circle Scan , scan or touch points. I asking now because when I get caught up I'm going to work on it.

            The Loadprobe command will tell PC-DMIS that you are using a SP600, if it's properly defined. This should allow you to do scanning.

          Thanks everyone for their input, I got it done and it's running good. The only problem was the TTP and the Scan. I figured out it was the machine, one has the capability of scanning and one does not. So when I came to the other machine with the SCAN probe SP600M it recognized it and gave me more options and I used the one ya'll recommended and it's moving. Thanks again.
