  • Angles

    Hi All

    I am calibrating probe/tip angles. All is good when I calibrate previously calibrated tips/tips that were already part of the probe file. When I try to add a new angle, and then calibrate it, the probe goes off to a strange place, nowhere near the sphere. What the heck is up with that?

    WEHAD THAT ONCE AND HAD TO DELETE THE PROBE FILE AND REDO IT

      Do you move your qualifacation tool each time you Quallify a tip.

        I had that happen to me also. I had to delete the Probe file for the probe I was using, then re-create the probe with all the angles that I needed. After that I could add angles with no problem.

          Well, that did not work. I deleted the old file and created a new one. Same thing, A0B0 is good, anything else is about 200 mm off target. However, if I go into another, existing file, I can add new angles, no problem. I do not move the sphere at all.

            After you did A0B0 did you exit the calibration and then go back in?

              Do you have the probe built right? if not It will not work right

                Yes, the probe is built right.

                  I just said that cause I had the same problem and went back and rebuilt the probe and then it worked. sometimes turning everything off and restarting everthing over helps.

                    When you calibrate are you calibrating A0B0 and then adding the angles and trying to calibrate only the added angels? You might try calibrating all angles doing A0B0 first.

                      Thanks, but I have tried that. This is to weird

                        Do the theoretical values for the probe tips look right? For example does A90B90 show zero for the Y axis?

                          Well, I have found that our machine doesn't like Thursdays so maybe shut down, go home, watch the Oilers spank the Ducks tonight and try again tomorrow.

                          Seriously, click "measure" in the probe utilities menu and the measure probe window opens then near the top at the right you have four choices "manual", "dcc", manual+dcc" and "dcc+dcc"

                          I have "dcc+dcc" checked on all my probes. When you measure like this it will ask you if the sphere has moved. Answer yes and take a manual hit. Then it will take three dcc hits and re-calculate the sphere's position. Then it will proceed with the calibration hits. Then when it changes angles it will take a dcc hit normal to the probe and the three hits again.

                          Hopefully this works for you. I had a similar problem and this cleared it up.

                            Right now, the the theoretical values for A90B90 show the following:
                            X=357.928
                            Y=1.33
                            Z=77.751

                            I have noticed that the PH10 seems to not be recognizng the tip change. For example, when I try to add A0B7.5, the tip is only a few mm off. When I try to add A52.7B180, the tip is about 200 mm from the sphere. How can this be happening? If the wrist were not recognizing the change, then all previous angles would also be off to, correct? Please remember that this is a new install on a new PC, and that I am using existing programs that I copied to a CD before switching PC's

                              you might have picked up a virise in or on the disk you used to bring your programs over.. I always liked it when our IT's put cumputer on the network. Then I saved all my programs on the network. and it stop alot of my problems.
