Today I Learned
Continuing the Today I Learned series we will cover an advanced technique called Shaft Along Normal, Shaft Away From Normal. Calypso will automatically select the probe to measure a feature.
Inside of each feature strategy is the stylus selection option which includes shaft away and shaft along normal.
Selecting these options will allow Calypso to pick the correct stylus to measure the feature. There are limitations such as having a series of stylus calibrated or f you are using a star stylus system then the stylus might not be able to scan the entire feature surface and modifications must be made to the scan path, etc...
This video will show how to use this technique
