    I learned it the "hard" way but Renishaw does have software support and training (PC) you can check into.

    I don't know anything about the training module but here's a link.... Renishaw Training Module

    Quick question to get things going.

    S1 writes to G54
    S101 writes to G54.1 P1
    S155 writes to G54.1 P55
    S1550 writes to G54.1 P550
    S201 writes to G54.2 P1


    Am I understanding this part correctly?

    Don't know about the last 2, but the first 3 are correct...

    Ss s = The work offset number that will be set.
    S1 to S6 (G54 to G59).
    S0 (external work offset).
    S101 to S148 (G54.1 P1 to G54.1 P48) additional offsets option.
    New work offset = active work offset + error.
    New external offset = external offset + error.
    Example: S3.

    Don't forget the . after the S value.

    Best way to learn the software is to grab a copy of the inspection plus manual and read it. IT forms the foundation for every cycle. Once you have a handle on that, grab the easyset manual so you don't need a work offset to make a measurement. The manuals are available from the renishaw website I believe. If not you can ask them and they will send you the documents.

    First thing you should do is see if the probe is really working;

    You can test probe in MDI

    enter G91 G31 X5. F1.;

    On cycle start , probe should start moving in X. Trigger probe and movement should stop if probe is working.

    If it is you need to figure out how to calibrate the probe and learn how to run the probing macros.

    Thanks, I just got the inspection plus manual. I am guessing I have the kinematics probe and not the strain gage probe.
