Can on-machine probing check hole and boss location?

Hello,

I have experimented with on-machine probing in the past but I cannot recall if it can check hole and boss locations.  Can anyone verify if it can check locations?

Are you using Renishaws inspection plus sub programs?

If so then yes you can get the location of holes and bosses.

Location and deviation from "ideal" location.

Yes, the machines I want to probe on have Renishaw programs installed and I successfully tested a simple probing program.

 

I need to make the inspection program in NX and I am not seeing hole and boss location for a sub-type.  There is an operation called probe cylinder but I thought it was just for checking size.

 

Just a reminder, I tested probing a while ago but I currently do not have the license for it so I am unable to check it myself.

I have heard them caled that.

 

The sub routines are 9814 for boss and bore?

 

Do you have the probing manual from Rennishaw?

I see 9814 in the manual and also 9823 but they apear to be used only for size, not location.  Am I missing something?

For different releases output vars may be different. You can start your 9814 on the real cnc and after finished check vars #100...#200. You will understand here location vars or error vars.
