  • Entering into the world of Multi-sensor


    I'm Completely new to the Multi-sensor but not to PC-Dmis, Currently i'm trying to teach myself. Right now i got stuck at Setting focus for offline program using cad model.

    How to set focus & Lighting for vision probe while doing offline program? Is there any option available for that ? Any guidance would be much appreciated.

    I do all my CMM programing offline. But I find with vision the settings your asking about are too touchy to do offline. Also having my offline seat updated to do vision cut out much of the scanning functionality that I need for the CMM. By the time you edit all those settings it's pretty much double the time it takes me for a program.

      I do a lot of my programming offline. However, when it comes to vision, I tend to stick to doing that live on the machine. For some reason the offline vision capabilities are glitchy, meaning settings I create offline do not carry over to online. I tend to have to go through all the vision features and redo them.

        IF Illumination parameters you program OFFline? Forget it when you run it ONline. As Barry mentions? Parameters (nicely) are GLITCHY.
        If you run a Optiv Performance 443? Ouch.
        A 20 year Hex Tech (Roger R.I.P.) got severely frustrated when our yearly 'Calibration' was getting done. TWENTY YEARS!. It was purchased...it was a demo machine.... maybe that was the issue?
        My personal opinion is that PC-DMIS Vision tries to do a lot of great things. BUT.....
        The Optiv machines were from the Black Forest in Germany, (old Mycrona?) and Hexagon fed the machine software which was created with snippets of code from around the world. Everything didn't go together very smoothly.
        To be honest? The machine I had (a 2015 build) worked pretty **** good at times? But (especially during 2D profiles and auto focus for surface points) the machine would get confused and go on a coffee break for seconds.... up to minutes... before moving on to the next feature.
        The performance IF it worked in EVERY program? Pretty good. But sadly the performance was hit and miss.
        My 2ยข.
