That's the exact same way we do it. We have UDEs for the standard probing routines that we do (e.g. check the stock size, check the top of a fixture) and that way all the programs look the same, regardless of the programmer doing to probing. We found too much variation when using the step by step probing operations, so those are only used in special cases.
Previously in this thread it was mentioned that if I wanted to store my UDE bitmaps in a different/custom folder I could by defining the path.
"The default folder in which to place the graphics is UGII_BITMAP_PATH. If you want to place the graphic in a different folder, you must supply the path. To avoid parser errors, do not include the backslash \ character in your path name."
For production reasons I have to store my own work away from the normal locations.
I have tried in vain to specify a unique location within the ude.cdl. How do we specify the path - without the backslashes??
UI_LABEL "Renishaw Skew 9817"
Thanks in advance.
Have you tried double backslash (\\) or slash (/) instead of the single backslash (\) as the path separator?
