  • 4.2 feature sets messed up on 4-19 release?

    We are having issues with feature sets that are created from points in 4.2 the april 19th release. Is anyone else using this(James??) and have you had problems with feature sets?
    what we are seeing is the actual values are just a bunch of odd charecters that are a mix of numbers and letters and it errors out the reporting.
    Also it is on a program that was created in 4.0 or possibly earlier. So beware of the april 19th release, I realize these are Beta so use at your own risk.

    Can you post your code?

    Im currently using that version of the RC as well.

      I have not had a problem with creating valid feature sets in that Beta build. I have created feature sets to CAD with that build, are you using CAD?

        I am using cad. I think we may have another issue that is part of this so I am still trying to find what exactly caused this to happen. as soon as I can get in on the cmm I'll make it do it again and post the code. for now we jumped back to the april 9 release. I thought I'd ask to see if anyone else had these issues and it sounds like it is our set-up here possibly.

        The other issue is that I am trying to program/modify offline using our Faro arm key, which is a manual key and small things like the auto features and DCC mode are notworking correctly offline since the key is programmed for a Manual machine, with no Dcc options. The auto features do not allow me to move the individual points in a circle for example. it only shows the start and end angles and none of the hits inbetween. this is only a small pain in the rear and can worked around or so I thought. But maybe not having the dcc options all intact is causing things to go haywire when I move to the actually Dcc Machine, with the "dcc" options that do work. also I do not have an option for path lines or any collision detection. So I do think this could be most if not all of my problem.

        Thanks

          Hi Mike. You are correct. Starting (I believe) in 4.0, our 3.7 manual users told us "We don't like those silly green pathlines. They just obscure what we are trying to see. Get rid of them". The pathlines have much more meaning in the DCC world because they control where your hits are taken. In the manual world, YOU control where your hits are taken.
          That said, we had to make them available (optionally, using the little button) again in 4.2 beta (but not in the release) and for future versions. The reasoning had to do with manual features which are used in alignments, but then get re-measured as DCC.
          I'm curious to why you'd like to see them in your manual situation?
          As for the collision detection, that may be disabled for manual machines on purpose. Once again, can you clarify why you'd still like it available?
          As for your problem with actuals... I'm not aware of any issues like that. As others have said, maybe you could post and example?
          Thanks,
          -Glenn

            Glenn,
            I have been working with Stacey at B&S with this a little already, but We hardly use our Faro arm, and I would like to us that seat of software to do the off line programming for our Dcc Global machine to get rid of our "bottle neck" in Quality. I am guessing that I am pushing the limits of the licence we purchased for the Faro arm. When I talked to Stacey this morning she informend me a tech would call me sometime today, they were looking into if what i want to do is possible with out buying "offline". I know my management here won't buy offline so I am trying to utilize what we do have to it's highest potential.
            I hope to be able to break into the Dcc machine schedule yet today to recreate the problem I have to post here. For now we just stepped back to 4.2released april 9th.
            thanks for the help, i'll try to get code posted yet.
