  • Marked Sets to Operator Mode

    I am doing some programming on an old system with PC DMIS 2009. I have written my programs, but the process I have to follow is to use marked sets to create an operator only interface, which I'm having trouble creating.

    Typically, you mark a section and it doesn't run in the program. I need the entire program to run in a marked set. So to create that, do I do the opposite of typical marking and actually mark/highlight the entire program? Then Edit - Marking - New Marked Set ? (By memory)

    And when I mark the entire program, certain things don't highlight. Alignment related for the most part, I think. Do these non-highlighted portions embed in the marked set?

    Thanks and sorry if this has been asked. I didn't see what I needed in a search.

    Aren't you thinking backwards? When you unmark the full program, some commands remain marked (alignmnents etc,). When you mark the full program, everything is marked.

      I'm basically just trying to understand how to make a program a marked set to run in Operator Mode. Seems very straightforward, but it wasn't working for me yesterday.

        Do the old clear marked , then mark all. and leave the manual alignment marked. Save this as a set. Do it again and then leave the manual alignment un-marked. Then save that set. Label them what ever make sense to you. Now when you are in operator mode, you have 2 options with every program. Runinng the program with or without the manual alignment. This should cover what the operators need.

          Also make sure that in the F5 settings window "Lock marked sets" isn't checked or you won't be able to make changes.

            I always will leave marked sets locked on then CMM itself. We do all of the programming OFFLINE so if we have to do an edit at prove out we will " unlock marked sets" and then lock it back up after prove out. Maybe being over cautious but I had some un-explained garbage going on and this seemed to solve it.

          Okay, I have successfully made marked sets for non-CAD programs. Now I'm gonna try with a CAD program with an iterative alignment.

          I was spectacularly unsuccessful at this so far.

          Any tips?

            As it should work in exactly the same way, you need to give more info - what did you do, what happened, what did you expect should happen, code?

              Hey Anders! thanks for your help. I think I have it under control. I was under the misimpression that I was marking what was going to run, rather than marking what was not going to run. For some reason when it was quickly demonstrated to me, I thought that marking sets was the opposite of marking portions of programs to exclude. Have a great day.

            It's counterintuitive, but when you mark features they look like the rest of the program. The unmarked features are the ones that change appearance. Just try marking all and unmarking all and you will see which is which. If you mark all the whole program will run.

              Changing EDIT WINDOW colors help with this this. I change my UNMARKED so they jump out at me.
