  • Illegal Tip Command

    Hi guys,

    I wrote a program for another location within our company and sent it to them but the guy there is getting an error of "Illegal Tip Command". It worked fine for me at this location but I'm at a loss of what to try to get this program up and running for them. I am running a Global Advantage 9-12-8 with an analog scanning probe. I'm not sure of the exact make/model of their machine but I know it's a TTP.

    He will have to 'load' his own probe into the program. Then qualify the tip angles.

      Either change the name after loadprobe to his own build as just mentioned, or to virtually build the probe at the workstation and then calibrate the tip angles used.

          Very good solution. In fact it was totally fughkin brilliant. Zip all your programs with a .prg, .cad, .prb, .dat file, set up sheet and an auto cal program, all with a .bas script to save it a public folder on his local machine upon extraction.
          (But, Jebus, if he can't build a probe file, I would find it impossible to resist sending him a probe file that is an inch longer than actual, and after he fish-hooks that probe, maybe he'll sit down and take the time to become an operator.)

          You do realize you need therapy, right Cumofo?

        **** yes I need therapy. I've been keeping a wife, three kids, a girlfriend, and myself indoors for over 25 years by putting my mouth around the old Pc-Dmis pipe. I'm so beyond burned out, I have to describe myself as "visionary" during job interviews to mask my unsettling apathy.

        "TIP" is DemonSpeak for a TIP ANGLE.
        Somewhere in the program there is a tip angle change that is not among the angles defined for the loaded tip.
        There may be more than one.
        They will be red, if you want to go looking for them.

        Easiest fix is open Probe Utilities and hit the MARK USED button.
        That will add the missing angle(s) to the probe file.
        Then qualify all the TIPS and you're good to go.

        It is possible their machine doesn't support the angle(s) you used in the program.
        For instance, if you're running a Renishaw wrist with 7.5° increments and they have a Tesa with 5° angles.
