The Aux Port must first be activated using Caliper 3D to use a Renishaw probe when programs are executed through Soft Check Tool Manager. To activate the Aux Port, follow the steps below.
1. Open Caliper 3D
2. From the PROBE menu, select EDIT
3. Set the AUX PORT to active
4. Enter the probe diameter and select OK.
5. Reboot the arm.
***NOTE: The arm MUST be rebooted after the port is activated. Changing the setting activates the port for the next boot up rather than acting as an ON/OFF type switch
