I material specific illumination calibration that is interchangeable.

I would like to have the ability to change the illumination calibration without having to re-calibrate the illumination when I inspect a different type of material.  At this time, if I calibrate the illumination to one type of material, then I can not use the same calibration on a different type of material as effectively.  I would like to be able to toggle between the illumination calibrations.  

This could be huge!

Additionally, If an artifact could be developed to simulate the depth of edge, color spectrum range and it's relative gloss/matte - that would be a huge plus.  Most specifically controlling size relative to the lighting intensity.

It becomes quite cumbersome to develop a test for each varying material when tight tolerance dimensions are used.

Hi Chris & Kyle, We already have a story in our backlog for adding the option of storing multiple illumination calibration files with the probe file. Please note, it is not currently scheduled but it is one I would like to push if there is sufficient demand for it.

Thanks, Neil

Neil, what is the threshold for sufficient demand?

Hi Kyle

I take into account a number of factors, including requests / votes on here, requests through our App's & Sales Channels and Product Line / Factory requests. As I mentioned, this request is in my backlog but to date there have been higher priority / value items my team have been working on
