  • Part identification within a routine

    First let me apologize if this is a silly question. I'm very new to this.
    I'm building a routine to measure parts. It's my understanding that once I write the routine I can then use it to scan many versions of the same part. I can then output a report on any specific part.
    So how do I identify the part when running the routine.

    When you say your going to scan many versions. What do you mean? Different parts or different variations of similar components?

      Hi There,
      It's the same part. I have a small production run of ten "identical" parts all made with minor tweeks to the process. I want to scan and analyse all ten parts and then compare them to the model. Obviously I would like to write one routine and then run it on the scans of the ten parts. The key is to keep their identities seperate.
      As a result of this virus thing I'm working at home with the scanner back at the shop. I scanned 6 parts and saved the COP's in separate program files. At this point it's a pretty simple measurement routine. a handful of point deviations, a colormap and a 15 slice cross section.

        I use an input comment to allow the operator/inspector to input the serial number or other identification for each individual part. Toggle the "display on report" box to have it show up in the report.
