  • Jog Mode

    good afternoon, i have a question about Jog Mode( mach/part/probe) How important is this. i havent seen anything in the posts about it so i am curious about it. i have parts that use datums that are cylinders with +/-.005" tp callouts and +/-.001" diameters that i think that this might affect the programs.

    Jog modes on the joystick box (that doesn't even sound right) are for manual moves only. If you're running DCC, don't worry about it. If you are in manual mode, it does help to hit normal to the surface if you're on an angle, or the probe is angled.

      but if im creating my program using manual hits, would that affect the dcc hits?

        Use Auto Features with pre-hits, this will correct any probe cosine error.

          That is why after creating a 'learned' feature you want to F9 it and set the nominals and regenerate the hits.

              99 times out of 100 I edit right in the edit window.

                Open the Auto Feature you want, say a Surface Point. Set the pre-Hits to 3, then click on the part where you want to take the point. Look at bottum left of window and it will tell you what to do, works great with Circle too.

                  Yeah, I do too but when you hit F9 it becomes more clear what you are editing.

                  Also, sometimes when I edit in the edit window and then go back and edit the feature a second time (because I goofed) it doesn't prompt to updated measured values or hits.

                  Also #2 - in F9 if you don't change the number of hits it won't regenerate them.
