  • CMM Probe in offline mode incorrect size

    This might not be a big deal, but is there any way to change was the probe looks like in offline mode to reflect its actual size. I'm using a 3mm x 30 probe and a 0.3mm x 30 probe and they both look the same during programming and simulation. It's kind of a pain to take hits in these tiny holes when I'm programming the 0.3mm probe and it looks like the 3mm probe.

    Verify the LOADPROBE command for the 0.3mm probe is indeed inserted in the program code.

      Yes, it is correct.

        Something must be wrong in the definition of the 0.3 x 30. It seems that one is not included in a standard PC-DMIS (at least not with my setup), the closest I have is 0.5 x 21 and they definitely look different:

          I figured it out. Apparently, when building the probe, I had the 3mm ball selected, even though I named it 0.3mmx30mm. My bad.

            remove the decimal place from the probe naming convention. HUGE no-no. Letters_Numb3rs_Underscores only.
