Preparation

Method

  • Create the images or photos to be used, and save them onto the PC
  • Open and pin the QT panel into place
    IC001MethodFig1.jpg
  • Open the Image Creator Workspace
    IC001MethodFig2.jpg

The Image Create workspace is shown:

IC001MethodFig3.jpg

The ribbon contains all the available options:

IC001MethodFig4.jpg

  • Image – allows the user to Add, remove or Replace an image
  • Probes – allows the users to add probing icons to the image
  • Zoom – options for probing icon size, and image size

 

To add an image to a step, first in the QuickTools panel:

  • Select an ‘Add Readings’ line
    IC001MethodFig5.jpg
  • From the ribbon select Add
    IC001MethodFig6.jpg

 

  • The image gallery will open
     
  • To add a new image: Click the + icon
     
  • Browse and select the required images, which will then be available in the image window
     
  • Select an image and click OK

  • The image will now be shown in the CAD view window:

IC001MethodFig8.jpg

In the QuickTool panel feature Properties:

  • Set the number of readings to be taken for that feature
    IC001MethodFig9.jpg

This will be the number of green ball icons we need to place onto the image.


From the ribbon:

  • Select the required probing icon from the ribbon
  • Using the cursor to position, click on the image to determine the position where a reading (green ball) or compensation point (red ball) should be taken
    IC001MethodFig10.jpg

Each point will be numbered, however during playback, only one point is shown, to determine where the next reading should be taken.

  • Use the zoom options to resize the image or probing icons
    IC001MethodFig11.jpg
  • Repeat the steps for each Add Reading line of the Quicktool
  • Once all images have been added, and edited for the QuickTools program, remember to save the file

Now when running a QuickTool, the image will be displayed in the measurement window, and the green and red balls will be animated, to guide the user through the feature measurement.
