This came as part of an email conversation from aftermarket. Some users will purchase PCDMIS CAD Offline licenses to support PCDMIS PRO CMM (DCC) licenses in production. If a PCDMIS CAD offline user creates a program using Clearance Cube, he/she unknowingly has a program that will not performed (motion) as designed because the PCDMIS PRO licenses do not implement Clearance Cube. My suggestion is that Clearance Cube should be available to Non-CAD licenses. A user should be able to define and use Clearance Cube pretty much like a Clearance Plane, or any other move command.
I would even suggest that for a PRO user, he/she could define the diagonal clearance cube corners using the probe when writing a program on a CMM. I believe Competitors (The Z boys) can do Clearance Cube w/o CAD.
