Benefits and Description

To provide powerful in-process probing functionality in NC, you can enable probing during workcell definition and combine CMM and NC steps in a single manufacturing model. The resulting CL file combines APT CL commands and DMIS syntax separated by a DMIS/ON | OFF keyword. This requires a Computer Aided Verification option license.
