To Set Up Start and End Points for the Probe Path
You can specify the Start and End points for the probe path for Measure steps using the Start and End elements, respectively. When a new Measure step is created, it will automatically use the End point of the previous Measure step as its Start point (unless you explicitly specify a different Start point).
1. Select Start or End in the MEASUREMENT STEP dialog box and click Define.
2. The system displays the DEF START or DEF END menu, respectively, with the following options:
Create—Create a datum point to serve as the appropriate start or end point.
Select—Select an existing datum point, or a Measured or Constructed point, to serve as the start or end point.
Remove—(Appears only if a point of the appropriate type has already been specified.) Delete the start or end point.
