                Wow, I'm really surprised to see that, but here it is on Hexagon's website: https://www.hexagonmi.com/en-US/abou...nishaw-equator

                I'm quite curious how much a license will cost.

                  Does it have an error map or still just used as a gauging / Comparison system with PCDMIS? I seen that it could be used with Verisurf as a proper CMM, as they had applied an error map to the system. Maybe someone from Hex can answer? Its very interesting if it can be used like a regular CMM.

                Yes! This^^^

                The PH20 might be cool too.

                  On the other site, it was said to work with polyworks too.

                    I'd be game for the equator now!

                      Still speculating here, it looks like it still works as a comparator so you still need a master part. Pcdmis will create a .cal file on a real CMM to compare to. Beauty of it is that u can copy over your proven CMM to the equator, change your probes in the program, and run. Speed of the Equator with the power of PCdmis.

                        That would be very cool.

                        I took a week long course at Renishaw to learn how to program the Equator, back when it was a newfangled thing. The instructor shared with us that the tech originally came from the company's dental implant machining products. I get the impression that the plan was originally to apply an error map and use it as a straight up CMM, but it just didn't meet their accuracy expectations. The machine is pretty accurate on it's own, but not what we normally expect from a CMM, especially with changes in temperature. So, they came up with the whole flexible gauge comparator idea.

                        I wonder how Verisurf manages to error map it? Then again, the Equator has been around over a decade. There have probably been a lot of improvements that make it more possible.

                            Thanks for the link. I was having a hard time searching for information about that. I didn't realize they were re-branding it as "CMM Master". It's cool that they are taking an Equator and customizing it to be accurate on it's own using their software, but that name is just waaaay too grandiose for what it is

                              I was just wondering if anyone has had a Dea CMM retrofitted from PC-DMIS TO CALYPSO.
