RDS-CAA Qualification and Programming Primer


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

The MasterProbe will have to be of type RDS-CAA in order to proceed with RDS-CAA qualification


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

If MasterProbe is not already of type RDS-CAA, drop down the Mode menu, choose CFS qualification, and proceed with locating Reference Sphere Position


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

If MasterProbe is already of type RDS-CAA, select Ref. Sphere position and follow prompts. NOTE: If not already in A=08, B=08, be sure to drive the RDS clear of all obstacles.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

When qualifying RDS-CAA, it is recommended that the Reference Sphere is oriented vertically. Unscrew the reference sphere from rotating plate, loosen rotating plate and rotate 1808 and reattach the reference sphere to the top threaded hole.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Be sure that the Tilt is set correctly. If the Reference Sphere is oriented vertically, Tilt should be set to 180. It matters not what Rotation angle is set. Take the first point in the direction of the stylus, as always.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

After setting the Reference Sphere position, it is necessary to set the Fitting Position of the MasterProbe. In this process, the MasterProbe will automatically find the Reference Sphere position in all 12 orientations.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

The progress of the Fitting Position is posted in the window. Status will indicate an OK status unless there has been a collision. Check that the Standard Deviation for MasterProbe is acceptable.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

To create a new stylus system, attach the stylus system, select Pick Up Stylus System.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Choose New


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Check the Probe type (RST, XXT TL3)NOTE: XXT types TL1 and TL2 are not compatible with RDS-CAA qualification.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Enter the NAME and STYLUS NAME 1. Check box for RDS-CAA

For qualification of individual positions, the box must remain unchecked.

This is the only place where qualification type (normal or RDS-CAA) may be set


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Select Qualify stylus. NOTE: If not already in A=08, B=08, be sure to drive the RDS clear of all obstacles. Take point in the direction of stylus shaft. Qualification of all 12 positions will be automatic.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Progress of qualification will be posted in the window.

To add a new stylus, select the Add New Stylus buttonEnter Name 2.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Select Qualify Stylus, Choose Full Qualification.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

In the window, select each position, choosing Show for each. Be sure head is free for rotation.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

If any position is not able to be qualified, choose Alternative. Click Show for the new angle.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Once all positions have been proofed for collisions, Click OK.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Progress will be posted in the window.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Once the Stylus System has been qualified with RDS-CAA, it may be used in measurement programs.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Create the measurement program as usual.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

In The Features Settings Editor, navigate to Stylus System.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

If not already assigned, select features and Set to the desired Stylus system.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

If not already assigned, select features and Set To desired Stylus (1 or 2).


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

In the new menu, RDS Angles it is possible to set the angle for each feature, however this method is rather tedious and fraught with errors.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Instead, go to the Stylus Rotation window.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

A CAD representation of the head, probe, and stylus appears. The current position is listed under New Angle PositionA=08, B=08 indicates a down position.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Angle Cheat Sheet

A=-908, B=908 indicates a back orientation

A=08, B=-908 indicates a left orientation

A=-908, B=-908 indicates a front orientation

A=08, B=908 indicates a right orientation


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Alternatively, the angle can be set by the orientation of a feature. Select the feature and select To Feature.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

If the preview of the angle of the stylus is incorrect, select Invert Position.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Once satisfied with the angle, accept the angle.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

To apply current angle to features, select the appropriate features and select Apply Angle.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Changes should be reflected in the Features Settings Editor.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Select orientation and apply for remaining features.


Rds caa qualification and programming primer

Changes should be verified in Features Settings Editor.
