  • Profile questions

    I'm sure this has been covered before but I can't find it this morning.
    Profile 0.1 / 10
    Where the engineer is trying to control abrupt changes in the form over a given area.
    How have the experts been dimensioning this in V2013.1?

    Line profile - the oldest version I have readily available is 2016, and there you just enter it in the line profile FCF. I don't remember which version introduced that…
    Surface profile - doesn't have it.

    Without the immediate solution available, I would suggest collecting points on the profile into a group (scan), density at least 3 pts/10, preferrably more. Then dimension profile of every possible (overlapping) subscan (SCN1.HIT[1..3], SCN1.hit[2..4], etc.).

    Becoming overwhelming if it really is surface profile you need...

      It seems that's available for line profile in V2016 which I use offline, but not surface profile.
      The machine is going to be using V2013.1.
      I guess I'm going to scan approx. 10mm segments on the surface overlapping segments, do a form only profile for each section.

      That option does seem available in V2013.1

    I used this option in V2013.1 and it seemed to work well.

      If they want surface profile, shouldn't there also be a value in the other direction, like "10x10"?

        I'm pretty sure it is not valid to specify per unit for surface profile. Certainly in ISO it is only valid for line profile.
