  • Take Image of Points

    I started programming an Optiv Performance 443 running PC-DMIS 2013 Mr1 in April of 2017.
    I have a program that checks the location of 4 1mm holes on a round part, two sets that are 20mm and 180° apart. Sometimes these parts have burrs, and I know, never check parts that have burrs! Always deburr! But they are deburred (just ask the guy who did it, right?). So I use Vision to check the location, which brought me to a 2 part question:

    - What is the best method to repeatably/reliably check for burrs? (Less important)
    The current method I use is: check if the location out tolerance deviates by .05mm (the tolerance is ±.08), and if so output a comment at the end that says which hole may be out, which the operator must close to print the results and see the holes.

    - Is it possible to capture an image containing the measured (or filtered, whichever) points of a Vision Auto Circle? (most important)

    Currently after the holes are measured there is an Image Capture command, which reliably takes an image of each hole, and there is a batch file that runs at the end of the program which opens them in Windows Photo Viewer (I don't want an image of the hole to output to the report.) But that only takes an image of the holes. I'd like to be able to immediately (or relatively immediately) see the points taken for the holes without having to go back, edit/test the feature, toggle measured/filtered points.

    To be clear and concise:
    *I can take an image of all of the holes, but I would like the points the camera took included in the images*

    Any help would be appreciated, and as always I'm more than happy to clarify anything that helps us find the right answer!

    You want an image of the actual feature being "taken"? Like the little green outline of your hole made up of tiny green dots?

        Do you know how to write simple code? You can create an executable and place it before your feature and "time" it just right to take a screen shot and archive it to a file.

          Yes, I have written several programs using external code (VB or Batch, not the internal BASIC) and I had assumed that's the route I'd need to take. I didn't know if it could be done natively within the program or not. +1

            Good deal! I don't have many years with vision and I have not came across anything internal that does what you're asking for. When writing something I'd suggest looking into App Event OnObjectAboutExecute... Might be of some help. I believe you can write something with the internal VB writer if I'm not mistaken.
