dan.brokstad 3 years ago in Offline Programming updated by Kyle Brummans 8 months ago 6

Let say you have more than one program running and you switch between them and want to do a test run program by program...

In offline, when executing a program, there should be slider in the  execution window, to speed up or slow down the animation.

Allow to default feature colors within "Edit Feature Appearance".

Albert Arteaga 7 months ago in Offline Programming 0

Having the ability to have custom colors default for feature colors makes changing the background color cater the color choices. Creating multiple features then having to back track and open the "Edit Feature Appearance" to change the color is not ideal.

Add a Debug option to PC-DMIS

cdsuttles 10 months ago in Offline Programming updated by davehocum 6 months ago 2

It would be helpful if PC-DMIS had a Debugging tool for offline programming. This would allow ability to step through programs one command at a time to troubleshoot flow control. It would also be nice to see the values of assigned variables along the way.

Deeper automated feature naming convention

Alan_C 3 months ago in Offline Programming 0

When programming offline I would like the naming conventions to more customizable. Example...If I select to measure a diameter that is .750 then I would like PC-DMIS to automatically assign that circle to be named CIR_750_1 and the next time (whenever that may be) a circle is selected with that same nominal diameter it would come up as CIR_750_2. Since I try to program with the least amount of movements in between features (path optimization) I don't always measure all of the Ø.750's at once. Just an example...Usually I would measure the Ø.750, then the Ø.129, then the second Ø.750. So I would like PC-DMIS to automatically assign (with the help of ID Setup)  the circles as CIR_750_1, CIR_129_1 and then CIR_750_2. Hope this makes sense...

3d rotation mode for clip plane

Kingsld1 6 months ago in Offline Programming updated by Kyle Brummans 6 months ago 1

Have a 3d rotation mode for clip planes.   It would make it much faster to cut away the stuff you don't want to see if you had a graphic you could drag around.   Maybe have handles you could translate in X, Y or Z and other handles so you could rotate the clip plane in I, J, and K.

Different hole diameters with composite pattern

Don K. 6 months ago in Offline Programming 0

When selecting holes with a composite pattern true position requirement the tolerancing window automatically filters the selectable holes to only list holes of identical sizes.  Previous versions of PC-DMIS would let us select holes of any diameter from the tolerancing window to include in a pattern requirement.
