To Create Move to Pt Moves
1. Choose Move To Pt.
2. The GOTO POINT menu appears with the options:
Specify Axes—The probe motion is controlled by the options X Move, Y Move, and Z Move in the lower portion of the menu. The probe is allowed to move only along the axes checked off in this menu. By default, all the axes are checked off; the probe then moves directly from the current position to the target point. If some of the axes are disallowed, the final probe position is computed based on the current point and the axes allowed. The X Move, Y Move, and Z Move options are available only if the Specify Axes option is selected from the GOTO POINT menu.
Z First—The probe moves along the Z-axis from the current position to the level of target point; it then moves in the XY plane to the target point.
Z Last—The probe moves along in the XY plane from the current position to the location of the target point, and then moves along the Z-axis to arrive at target point.
3. Specify the target point:
Select—Select an existing datum point.
Create—Create a new datum point using the regular functionality for creating datum points. The datum point will belong to the CMM assembly.
Offset—If this option is checked off, the probe will move not to the point selected or created using the options above, but to some "offset" point. The OFFSET INCR menu will appear with the options X Increment, Y Increment, and Z Increment; these will represent offsets along the axes of the reference coordinate system. Check off the axes desired, choose Done, and enter the offset values along the axes, as prompted.
