  • Just got my first offline seat and I cant find Probes or Tip Angles

    Hello all,

    I as of today have my own offline seat for PC-DMIS. I took all my probe files from one of the computers that is hooked up to the CMM and copied them onto my computer. Is there a specific folder I need to put the probe files into?

    Thanks in advance.

    On the homepage go to edit, set search path, drop down to find probe directory and point to the folder for your probes.
    Whatever a man sows, he shall reap.

      Awesome. Thank you much. I'll remember this. I was a little surprised i couldnt find any other threads talking about this. I just havent done it in a while i guess.

        I would get in the habit of creating the same / similar locations for your OFFLINE seat that the CMM uses and don't create some system entirely different. It will only make it more difficult to remember these things if you create 2 unique systems just because you can.

          So you would recommend creating a shared data drive of some sort so all the CMMs and offline seats can pull from the same file? I know we currently do this for our reports. All of our CMM reports are sent to a shared drive so anyone in quality can pull from it.

            He!! NO !!!! But use the same locations / file paths on the " INDIVIDUAL COMPUTERS" . So no matter what computer your on, the files paths are same

          This is where all of the probe files are stored by PCDMIS.

          C:\Users\Public\Documents\Hexagon\PC-DMIS\2017 R2

          Each CMM must have it's own separate set of probe files.
          Time for the Trolls to leave.

            You dont want your probe files to come from a common file. Physical probes are all different and will be compensated differently

              DO NOT DO NOT put your probe files in a common place!! DO NOT put them on a network, either!

              Probe FILES MUST (NO EXCEPTIONS) be saved on the computer's local drive and only accessible for that machine.

              PC DMIS will allow you to break these rules but IF you do you WILL run into problems.

              Every PC DMIS seat in my shop has a file named "Search Path" and all PC DMIS related stuff that has a search path definition goes to the same address at each CPU, like this:

                Ok Ok. Now I have another problem. When I run PC-DMIS 2016 offline on my computer in "Run as Administrator", even when I have the search path for the probes set correctly, it can't find them.

                But when I run PC-DMIS normally, the probe files are found fine. Has anyone else seen this before?

                Thanks.

                  I'd recommend calling Hexagon and having them remotely access your seat via team viewer. They can fish around and find out real quick what's going on.

                  When people have probefile issues, they commonly stem from the probefiles having "read only" permissions issues, probefiles being in wrong place, or probefiles being on a network location
