2020 R2+ Datum Shift reporting

2020 R2 no longer shows any information on the report regarding datum shift. I find these values to be very helpful at times when diagnosing issues with our parts.


Agree! It tells alot about the evaluation, has it been used VS is it allowed, etc.

I agree. I use this data for understanding how the feature(s) shift, especially when we are having issues or when programming a new part. 


It will also be helpful to know how the machine operators can make the part closer to nominal.  If there is a shift that makes the position read almost perfect, but the datums are shifted a lot, you might think you have a really good part when you don't.

I've just got tossed into a new company which uses releases with geotol. Never realized the new Demons don't show

datum shift. Ol' XactMeas wasn't perfect, but it DID show datum shift, and it was pretty handy as mentioned above. Please let it back in the asylum!  ;-)

Make it optional as part of preferences.   There are folks that use it and folks that don't  want the space taken up on the report.   I'm sure there were reasons why it was removed and I doubt that they have changed.

Wow. Two years and still no response from Hexagon about any interest with adding Datum Shift as an option.

Come on, make it optional already!

I agree 100%.  Make this optional to show on reports.  Over the last several years i have come to rely on looking at the datum shift for any trouble shooting.  Not being able to see this now is somewhat concerning.
