About the PLAY PATH Dialog box
When you display a probe path, the system opens the PLAY PATH dialog box. The collapsible upper portion of this dialog box lists the Dimensional Measuring Interface Standard (DMIS) data for the measure sequence or operation. You can save this DMIS data in a DMIS file directly from the PLAY PATH dialog box, by clicking the appropriate option on the File menu.
The lower portion contains the following buttons:
Play Back
Display the probe motion going back from the current position of the probe.
Stop displaying the probe path.
Play Forward
Display the probe motion going forward from the current position of the probe.
Go To Previous DMIS Record
Go to the previous DMIS record in the file.
Rewind to the start of the probe path.
Fast Forward
Fast forward to the end of the probe path.
Go To Next DMIS Record
 Go to the next DMIS record in the file.
The Probe Clearance button lets you access the Measure functionality, to compute probe interference, and clearance. If a solid probe model is used, its geometry can be selected for measuring. If the probe is defined by parameters, it will be temporarily converted into a "dummy" part, with geometry based on the appropriate probe parameters.
The Position Probe button lets you select a point on the probe path to position the probe. To position the probe at a certain DMIS data line, click DMIS File > Position Probe.
At the bottom of the dialog box, there is a slider to adjust the display speed. Moving the slider to the right makes the display faster; moving it to the left slows the display.
The Close button closes the PLAY PATH dialog box.
