Option for saving measurement data in a side car file

David Campbell 7 months ago in Metrology Software / PC-DMIS 0

It would be excellent if there was a user toggled option to have all measured results saved to a sidecar file that is time stamped.

Currently results are stored in the measurement routine and if the program is re-run, it overwrites the previous results.

It would be good if these sidecar files could be loaded into the program so that reports could be regenerated in the case where you have changed your reporting output or added additional dimensions etc. 

This would eliminate the need to re-measure separate parts if you decide to change the reporting or miss reporting an item (assuming you dont need to physically measure more of the part).

It could also provide a method to archive results that are not exported reports in PDF, excel, txt formats etc.'
