  • Scanning

    I have tried to do scans offline but can’t seem to get them to work properly. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong? Does anyone have instructions on how to do this? I looked in the help files and it doesn’t quite make sense.

    How aren’t they working properly? Hits not generating, or generating strangely?

      They’re either not generating or they’re on the cad model but when I do a dry run, the probe isn’t hitting the points. When I did a simple scan, I got that to work perfectly. The probe followed the contours like I wanted it.

        Do you have probe comp on with an appropriate tolerance? Are you set to FINDNOMS?

          Probe comp is on. I’m set to Master.

            I’ll typically check to make sure I’ve selected all the CAD sections, reset my points (1, D, 2), check my cut vector, and regenerate.

            I have noticed, scanning on a Zeiss with PC-DMIS, that FINDNOMS and CAD Comp will often fix a lot of issues I have with scanning.

                FINDNOMS Should be on, MASTER is for scanning a part without a CAD model. This means that when the 1st part (without a CAD) is scanned it retains that info as the MASTER info.

                Make sure your CAD model surface vectors are correct : EDIT>GRAPHICS DISPLAY WINDOW>CAD VECTORS

                Scan setting should be NULLFILTER> DEFINED> FINDNOMS

                Make sure probe comp and CAD comp are ON I always use selected graphics as well.

                  Takes a few attempts to get it down but once you are confident it's a pretty handy tool. Always try to avoid writing or scanning CAD seams as well. Scans don't like CAD seams
