  • Cone Measurement.

    I have not touched a CMM in years so please be gentle. Will I get an accurate/repeatable cone measurement if the cone is 0.120" deep has an angle of only 3 degrees?

    Thanks.

    Depends on many things. Condition of cone; is it round? etc. What size probe? How many hits? What type of machine? Which version of the software? How good is good enough? (+/-.5 deg, .25 deg, etc.)

    Try to get at least 9 hits on each of 3 levels and you should be ok. HTH

      What Wes said. Also, try writing a short program for just that feature. Then run it a number of times. Move the part between runs to see what kind of repeatability you get. Kind of a mini R&R.
      When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.
