  • On Error

    I can't believe I've been running this software for 3+ years and have never used the ON ERROR [checkbox] in the advanced section of the auto features and in case any of you haven't heard of it, I just wanted to share a little information with you all. God only knows I've picked up on a ton of helpful little timesavers from you all...

    I was measuring an O.D. a few hours ago and because the location of the O.D. was so far off, my first measurement with a 8mm prehit retract wouldn't even find it. Normally on parts that are known to vary drastically in position, I take a circle with a large prehit and retract prior to doing the actual measurement then I use the relative measure [checkbox] inside of the actual measurement feature or in the case of a feature that is known to be totally out of whack, I would do a readpoint that prompts the operator to place the probe in the center of the O.D. and use the readpoint for the relative measurement.

    This ON ERROR option is awesome! It works just like the FIND HOLE for an I.D. but when it is unable to find the O.D. or encounters a false hit during the measurement of the O.D. it prompts you to place the probe in the center and asks you if you want to save the measured value as your new target just like the find hole does. Man, if I knew about this 2-3 years ago I would have saved myself a ton of headaches. I don't know though, this place itself gives me some serious headaches (j/k)...

    Is this something new in 3.7 & 4.1 or just something that I have overlooked in the past 3 years? You would have thought that in one of the three B&S classes that I took I would have picked up on that one, but I don't remember anyone pointing that cool little feature out in any of the classes.

      Thanks for the reassurance.

      I don't know maybe I was just too busy trying to figure out work-arounds for the demon to go finding something else that didn't work like it was supposed to...

        I agree with you about these little features that are all over the place.
        They can be of great benefit to you IF you are aware and know how to use em.

        I have taken 3 classes and even some of the basic stuff does not get covered in class.....there is just SO MUCH stuff.
        and even in class the instructors do not know all of the features (no offense meant here)

        Thanks for bringing this one to light for the rest of us!

            Been there forever. Where were you? J/k...

            You can do a lot with that command (also, hope it's fixed - depending on controller unit it worked in total n/c mode {thats per the BnS guys, now hex guys...}) I have not used it much though...

              Like I said, too busy finding a work-around for a work-around. Or maybe I've been too hung-over...

              I'll probably use it for tons of my auto-features now.
