  • Scan question...

    When scanning from different angles, I notice this in the attached pic:
    I did one scan at a0b0, and another at a90b-90 of the same position, but they come out in 2 different places. Seems like a simple fix but could someone give me some insight on this?

    Thanks guys!!

    Don't try scanning with the 'tip' of the probe, use the side. If you are trying to scan the table of the machine, for example, don't use A0B0, use some angle so you aren't on the tip of the probe.

    as a general rule, try not to scan a surface using a probe that is also normal/perpendicular to the vector of the surface.
    individual points is fine.
    but scanning a top surface with a0b0 sometimes results in skipping and vibration which could skew scan results.
