    2017 R2 Service Pack 5 Fixes and Improvements:

    • Fixed an issue where a circle scan went more than 360 degrees and in the wrong direction.
    • Fixed an overcurrent error that may have occurred when PC-DMIS executed a tool change that required the operator to manually make 
    • the change.
    • Fixed an issue where bitmaps were not created when Vision Diagnostics was enabled.
    • Fixed an issue where PC-DMIS would not recognize an auto cone feature having a 1 degree cone angle.
    • Adjusted the limit at which a constructed curve is considered to be a cross section.
    • Fixed an issue where X5 type probes could not be used to perform manual stylus changes.
    • Fixed an issue where, after sample hits were measured, an incorrect probe motion occurred to reach the first hit of the feature (Circle or Cylinder). This issue occurred when a negative spacer was specified and its absolute value was greater than the radius of the feature.
    • Fixed an application error that may have occurred on dual-arm machines caused by the Tool.dat file.
    • Fixed an issue where the number of rotations was incorrectly calculated when the difference between the start and end angles was close 
    • to 360 degrees or multiples.
    • Fixed an issue where, if a wrong dimension value (such as width and length for slots, and diameter for a circle, cylinder, or sphere) was entered in the Auto Feature dialog box and the Create button was selected, the command was not created. In addition, one of the following error messages should have appeared to help identify the reason:
      • For an outer feature: "Invalid number entered - must be greater than zero" 
      • For an inner feature: "Sizes for a contact feature should be greater than probe diameter" 
    • Fixed an issue where some data may not have appeared on the last page of a default report template when the template had three or more sections. 
    • Fixed an issue where the cloud of points (COP) showed zero number of points in the Pointcloud Operator dialog box when a pointcloud point colormap was edited. This issue prevented the point colormap from being applied. 
    • Updated DMIS Import to use substituted text when it parses a command line. 
    • Fixed an issue where PC-DMIS stopped working when a subroutine was executed from the cursor. 
    • Fixed an issue where an incorrect probe type was sent to the machine controller when the probe was changed from an analog scanning probe to a THD probe. 
    • Fixed an issue with the Pointcloud Export to PSL function where PC-DMIS did not select the proper alignment when an external alignment was used. 



    2017 R2 Service Pack 4 Fixes and Improvements:

    • Added complete temperature compensation support (reading the temperature, and using all temperature modes) to the I++ client for the technology server. If the UseTemperatureCompensationV2 registry entry is set to True, you can change the temperature sensors from the I++ registry settings when running from an I++ DMS Client interface.
    • Fixed an issue to match a change by Microsoft regarding graphic information.
    • Fixed an issue where the warmup state of the CMS laser probe was not managed correctly in all scenarios.
    • Resolved an application error that may have occurred in a specific condition when a laser scan command was created.
    • Fixed an issue where, during a scan points selection in all laser scan dialog boxes, the underlying CAD surface toggled its status from selected to unselected and vice versa with each click.
    • Fixed an issue where custom toolbar icons were missing or invalid.
    • The firmware is now checked to determine if it supports the THD probe type.
    • Fixed an issue where laser surface points were not exposed in the Point Nominal Deviation dialog box.
    • Fixed an issue with Pointcloud Surface colormaps when working in offline mode with a laser inspection routine; the colormap refreshed in the Graphic Display window during each copy and paste operation.
    • Fixed an issue where laser features were not drawn in the Graphic Display window when they were pasted into the Edit window.
    • Fixed an issue that affected the performance of the Vision 2D Profile feature.
    • Updated the DMIS Postout Helper comment to select a feature's DATDEF label or the next one that is available. This is only used when PC-DMIS exports to a DMIS file and imports a DMIS file.
    • Updated the DMIS Postout Helper comment to extract ID from its start alignment. This is only used when PC-DMIS exports to a DMIS file and imports a DMIS file.
    • Fixed an issue where PC-DMIS stopped working when it used a PRINT command to generate output to Excel multiple times.
    • Fixed an issue where migration of CNCSettings.dat files from 2016 and older versions of PC-DMIS would not transfer correctly.
    • Fixed an issue where Probe orientation settings would be lost if any additional settings were updated in CNCServer.
    • Fixed an issue where the Set Protected Moves dialog box did not initialize correctly.
    • Prevents a controller communication interruption and resulting message about waiting for controller ready. 



    2017 R2 Service Pack 3 Fixes and Improvements:

    • Fixed an issue where holding down Ctrl while clicking the left mouse button on a feature in the CAD window did not jump to that feature in the Edit window.
    • Fixed an issue where if the measurement routine contained an EMPTY COPOPER command that was above the COP command, and the reference to a COP was lost, the desired COP could not be selected.
    • Fixed wrong Read Position coordinates on the slave arm when auto features in a dual-arm measurement routine were executed.
    • Fixed an issue with the management of wrist angles and extension lengths when performing tool changes with an HD wrist that involve both an HR-R rack and a separate stylus changer rack.
    • Fixed an issue where the Graphic Display view did not orient correctly if you used a portable laser probe to scan in a direction with a negative Z component.
    • Fixed an issue where, for vector points, the actual values reset to the nominal values when the measurement routine was saved and reopened.
    • Fixed an issue where probes were not drawn in the Graphic Display window after deserialization.
    • Fixed an issue where laser features could not be extracted from a cloud of points inside a subroutine.
    • Fixed an issue where the ".executedcommands" automation method would fail when combined with loop logic in the Edit window.
    • In version 2017 R1, we were adding name Custom Material to material coefficient file when user would type CTE which is not available in the file. This causes confusion. In order to keep material coefficient file clean, this change will not add 'Custom Material" in material coefficient file.
    • Fixed an issue where the Position dimension size value lower tolerance was always using 0.
    • Fixed an issue where an extra header line appeared in the Excel output for "Form" location axes. Flatness, Roundness, and Straightness may have generated the extra line.
    • Excel output now pays attention to any alignment change to represent the output.
    • When an Automation application opened or created a measurement routine or an inspection plan using the Automation 1.0 methods listed below and supplied a CAD file name, PC-DMIS marked the CAD file as "Modified" and used the current schema to save the file. This caused issues with INSPECT. The affected methods were:
      • PartPrograms.OpenRoutine(..)
      • PartPrograms.OpenInspectionPlan(..)
      • PartPrograms.CreateRoutine(..)
      • PartPrograms.CreateRoutineFromInspectionPlan(..)
      • PartPrograms.CreateInspectionPlan(..)
      • PartPrograms.CreateInspectionPlanFromPlanXml(..)
    After PC-DMIS loads the CAD file, it now marks the file as "Not Modified".
    • Added the DriverVersion public property to the PC-DMIS COM interface machine object. This read-only property returns the driver version for your measurement machine. It returns version information from the machine interface call driver_get_version.
    • Fixed a Find Hole functionality issue with the I++ interface.
    • The graphical analysis point size value in the Analysis area in the Auto Feature dialog box now converts to the selected unit when you create a new measurement routine.
    • Fixed an issue where the path line color was wrong if PC-DMIS detected a collision between the probe and the CAD surfaces.
    • Fixed an issue where PC-DMIS may have stopped working when you chose to import all CAD GD&T callouts.
    • Fixed an issue where the FDC interface may have returned incorrect AB angles for hit data.
    • Fixed an issue where some probe extension arrangements were not properly recognized as being eligible for refinement calibration.
    • Fixed an issue where a measurement routine stopped executing when an AUTOCALIBRATE command that was marked for Arm2 was run. This was caused by a communication issue that occurred when the tool.dat file was sent to Arm2.
    • The values for the Pt. Size, + Tol, and - Tol advanced measurement options in the Analysis area in the Auto Feature dialog box are expressed in the current measurement units (mm or inch).
    • This fix allows multiple surfaces or wires/edges to be selected by holding the Ctrl key and left clicking on these in the CAD window.
    • Fixed an issue where the fwlib32.dll file was not installed on the computer.
    • Enabled the update work offset function to work correctly.


    2017 R2 Service Pack 2 Fixes and Improvements:

    • The "Passthru To Controller" command sends commands to the NC controller. You can use the prefix "CWS", which represents the Precitec controller (CWS), and the token "#" to send commands to the Precitec controller.
      • For example, to take a dark reference, in the Edit window, enter the command CWS#$DRK in the Edit window.
      • CWS# - Sends the command to the Precitec controller. $DRK - Starts taking the dark reference.
      • If there is no prefix (CWS#), the PassThru command is sent to the NC controller.
      • This solution works for FDC-SLC and FDC-VisionBox. It does not work with embedded controllers.
    • Fixed an issue where some B-spline surfaces that represented a cone were incorrectly identified as a cylinder.
    • Fixed an issue where the descriptions of some items were missing from the Setup Options dialog box in the Chinese Simplified language pack.
    • Fixed an issue where some printers caused PC-DMIS to not print textual data at the bottom of a report page. PC-DMIS now queries a printer multiple times for a font size so that the data fits on the report. 


    2017 R2 Service Pack 1 Fixes and Improvements:

    • Updated the interface for the Faro arm with contact probing capability to 64-bit.
    • For Leitz and common controllers, when temperature compensation was turned on in the controller for the workpiece, the MOVABS position command was adjusted by the compensated values. To keep compatibility with FDC, we added new capability to decompensate the position.
    • Fixed a runtime error executing AUTOCALIBRATE with TEMPCOMP in a dual-arm measurement routine.
    • Fixed an issue where the descriptions of some items were missing from the Setup Options dialog box in the Chinese Simplified language pack.
    • Fixed an issue where editing a feature vector may have caused an incorrect display in the Live View.
    • Fixed an issue with the level functionality of quick fixture. If an item had never been moved, a bad vector was used; this caused the item to disappear.
    • Fixed an issue where rotating the rotary table could result in the incorrect drawing of the feature in the Live View.
    • Fixed an issue where extra geometry sometimes displayed after a mirror operation.
    • Fixed an issue where the position of the rotary table was not updated after 4 Axis scanning.
    • Fixed RDS (CAA wrist) support for the CMMOS interface.
    • Due to the implementation of simplified temperature compensation in PC-DMIS 2017 R2, the temperature compensation for dual arm did not work. This issue fixes temperature compensation in dual arm. Dual-arm machines will now be able to use the original temperature compensation command and continue to compensate part measurement for temperature.
    • Fixed an issue with constructed circle's outlier filter.
    • Fixed an issue where data was incorrectly exported in IGES format when the Pointcloud Export command was used, and the file type was set to XYZ or PSL.
