  • How to manage probe calibration results in the format I want

    My customer use 10 machines in their factory.

    They use many probes and dock table.

    They calibration all of probes and angles everyday.

    They checked calibration result on result window just see before.

    But they want input auto save fuction in auto calibration part programs.

    Save file's format is no matter, but they more want 'xls' or 'csv' type file.

    How can I manage probe auto calibration result better then before?

    Two options - you can set calibration results to append (setup button in probe utilities dialog) so you have a complete history - (you'd have to teach the operators that most recent results are at the bottom of the results window).

    Perhaps a better option would be to copy the results files somewhere after calibration.

    The results files are located wherever your probes are kept - same name as the probe but with a .RESULTS file extension.

    You can use the FILE Copy command withing PC-Dmis to copy these somewhere else after the Auto Cal commands.


    Code:
    AUTOCALIBRATE/PROBE, PARAMETER_SET=ALL-TIPS-WITH-DEFAULTS, QUALTOOL_MOVED=NO,
    SHOW_SUMMARY=NO, OVERWRITE_RESULTSFILE=NO
    ASSIGN/SOURCEPATH="C:\CMM Files\2018 R1\Probes\P4_4BY40.RESULTS"
    ASSIGN/DESTPATH="C:\\CMM FILES\\ProceCalArchive\\P4_4BY40_"+SYSTEMDATE("yyy yMMdd")+".RESULTS"
    FILE/COPY,SOURCEPATH,DESTPATH,FAIL_IF_DEST_EXISTS
    (The results files are a text file but with a .RESULTS extension - they can be opened and viewed with Notepad)

      I've always assigned probe details after the calibration:

      Code:
                  ASSIGN/V1=PROBEDATA("STANDARDDEVIATION", "T1A30B180", "T2")
      then used a FILE/WRITELINE to export it:

      Code:
      FPTR =FILE/OPEN,CSV_FILE,APPEND
      FILE/WRITELINE,FPTR,V1
      FILE/CLOSE,FPTR,KEEP
