Is this a hardware issue or software connection issue?

Is there an offline viewer available? Something that results can be reviewed?

Change marker size

dan brokstad 6 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 3 years ago 1

Ability to change the marker size to bigger when you click on the point cloud (Point Cloud Alignment). Often you click straight through the cloud then you select points.

See this two points, they are clicked very close and one is going thru the top surface on my cloud.
Of course I know the alt- buttom ;-)

Representing size dimension in report window

Prasanna Sathyanarayanan 6 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by Rob Jensen 2 years ago 1

Most engineering carries specification for size mostly one time whatever the feature may be. There wont be specification separate for upper and lower size's . The fitted geometry would result in multiple size evaluations as specified by the size operator. It looks good if the size reporting carries max and min sizes in a bracket in the reporting window automatically as we are representing the nominal twice in the report window with positive and negative dimension. This could better be single nominal dimension with clear explanation of measured sizes represented as per the specification operator's.

Ability to define "paste with pattern" offsets by CAD selection

dave amstutz (djams) 6 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 3 years ago 0

Title pretty much says it all. I've got a CAD model right there in the CAD window. I'd like to be able to define pattern offsets by clicking on CAD geometry.

Having ability to choose the alignment in which values of assignments are given

jean-francois manlay (jefman) 6 years ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS updated by neil kay 3 years ago 0

For example, ASSIGN/V1=QUALTOOLDATA("XYZ", "MY_SPHERE") or ASSIGN/V2=PROBEDATA("vector") are given in STARTUP alignment whatever the actual alignment.

If I want to use them in a prog, I have to recall startup, then create a generic feature and recall the actual alignment...

It would be more simple in actual alignment !

Allow vision feature parameter changes during execution

Neil Ryan 6 years ago in Metrology Software / Inspect updated by neil kay 3 years ago 1


During execution of vision part program, if a feature fails, the user currently has the option of changing the vision parameters to ensure correct execution. These changes are not saved for future execution, just for the feature to complete in the current execution.

The question here would be: Should this option be available in Inspect as default? If yes, we would lose the control that the Inspect product has. If, No, then we lose a lot of flexability of current execution from Pcdmis

We may want to consider this as an option?
