  • Calibration

    Question-Can anyone tell me that if I'm running 2 CMM's all paths are set to a server where the program and probe files live. Do the Toolc.dat and tool.dat file have to be on the server to or how does that work. I'm in the process of executing this. Pleeeeeeease help me I'm drowing in a pool of knowledge without a clue.

    DO NOT, under ANY circumstances use a common location for probes. The calibration on one machine for the probes will NEVER match a second machine. Just the fact that you will never be able to get the head's rotation to the exact machine-orientation-angle will screw you up.

      You should have DMIS on the CMM resident computer. Also, the tool.dat and Toolc.dat along with downl.oad (if needed by your setup), should all be on the CMM resident computer. Also, the probes can have the same names ,but, need to be on the resident CMM computer also. Otherwise, one day you will qualify the probes used on CMM1 with the single probe file and the next day you will qualify the probes on CMM2 and on both days you will have unqualified probes on one machine or another because you over-wrote the data from the other CMM. That is a bad idea yoy have.

        Thanks you all. Those were good points....will move to common drive.

          When you say "common" you mean unique to each CMM right?

            Yes sir ree dot.com

            But (always a but) give me an example of a error. I will still make it unique to each CMM but just wanting to know when I run each probe at each machine which has PCDMIS loaded on the C drive it writes the probe results to each of the tool.dat on the C drive. Still trying to understand why..it seems to work that way.
