FARO® Knowledge Base

Shortcut Downloads for CAM2

CAM2-Beauty.png

Overview

Shortcuts allow you to define quick composite measurement commands or macros, such as the length between two circles, a custom coordinate system, or a bolt-hole pattern. These can be executed from a single icon within the Automation ribbon. Shortcuts can be created by and shared amongst users.

FARO® has provided a library of Shortcuts for CAM2® covering a wide range of common workflows. These Shortcuts are free to download and can also be modified for your application. For information on importing a Shortcut, see Importing Shortcuts into CAM2.

CAM2 Shortcut Descriptions

Available Shortcuts are described below. Simply click on the File Name to download, or to browse/download the entire Shortcut library click here.

Icon File Name Description
Angle 2 Cy.png

Angle 2 Cylinders.xml

Prompts the user to measure two cylinders, then calculates the angle between the center lines (axis). Note: the Angles a sensitive to the direction probed.

Angle 2L.png

Angle 2 Lines.xml

Prompts the user to measure a plane and two lines, then calculates the angle between the two. Note: the angle is sensitive to the probed direction of the lines.

Angle 2 P.png

Angle 2 Planes.xml

Prompts the user to measure two planes, then calculates the angle between the vectors of the two planes.

Angle 3 C.png

Angle 3 Circles.xml

Prompts the user to measure a plane and 3 circles, and calculates the angle between the three circles, where the third measured circle is the apex of the angle.

Angle Co P.png

Angle Cone Plane.xml

Prompts the user to measure a cone and plane, then calculates the angle between the cone center line (axis) and plane surface.

Angle Cy P.png

Angle Cylinder Plane.xml

Prompts the user to measure a cylinder and plane, then calculates the angle between the cone center line (axis) and plane surface. Note: the angle is sensitive to the probed direction of the cylinder.

Int Circ Cy Co.png

Circle Cone-Cylinder.xml

Prompts the user to measure a cone and cylinder, then constructs a circle at the intersection of the two features. Note: features must actually intersect otherwise the circle will not be constructed.

Int Circle CySp.png

Circle Cylinder-Sphere.xml

Prompts the user to measure a cylinder and a sphere, then constructs a circle at the intersection of the two features. Note: features must actually intersect otherwise the circle will not be constructed.

Int Circ Pl Co.png

Circle Plane-Cone.xml

Prompts the user to measure a plane and cone, then constructs a circle at the intersection of the two features. Note: features must actually intersect otherwise the circle will not be constructed.

Dove-tail Seal Groove.png Dove-tail Seal Groove.xml Prompts the user to measure two planes, and two coaxial cones (tapers) to calculate the upper groove width and groove depth at four positions. This feature is commonly used in the Oil & Gas industry.
Length 2C.png

Length 2 Circles.xml

Prompts the user to measure a plane and two circles, then calculates the distance between the center points of the two circles.

Length 2 Cy.png

Length 2 Cylinders.xml

Prompts the user to measure two cylinders, then calculates the distance between the center lines (axis) of the two. Note: cylinders must be parallel with 3° otherwise the length will not be calculated. The length is calculated from the mid point of the first cylinder axis projected perpendicularly onto the axis of the second cylinder. Then the distance between the two points is calculated.

Length 2 L.png

Length 2 Lines.xml

Prompts the user to measure a plane and two lines, then calculates the distance between the lines. Note: lines must be parallel with 3° otherwise the length will not be calculated. The length is calculated from the mid point of the first line projected perpendicularly onto the second line. Then the distance between the two points is calculated.

Length 2 P.png

Length 2 Planes.xml

Prompts the user to measure two planes, then calculates the distance between the planes. Note: planes must be parallel with 3° otherwise the length will not be calculated. The length is calculated from the center point of the first plane projected perpendicularly onto the second plane. Then the distance between the two points is calculated.

Length LC.png

Length Circle Line.xml

Prompts the user to measure a plane, line and circle, then calculates the shortest distance between the circle center point and the line.

Length LP.png

Length Point Line.xml

Prompts the user to measure a plane, line and point, then calculates the shortest distance between the point and the line.

Length 2C max.png

Max Length 2 Circles.xml

Prompts the user to measure a plane and two circles, then calculates the distance between the circle outer edges.

Length LCmax.png

Max Length Circle Line.xml

Prompts the user to measure a plane, line and circle, then calculates the maximum distance between the line and the furthest edge of the circle.

Length 2C min.png

Min Length 2 Circles.xml

Prompts the user to measure a plane and two circles, then calculates the distance between the circle inner edges.

Length LCmin.png

Min Length Circle Line.xml

Prompts the user to measure a plane, line and circle, then calculates the minimum distance between the line and the closest edge of the circle.

3 PCD Angle.png

PCD 3 & Angles.xml

Prompts the user to measure a plane and three circles, then constructs a best fit circle through the circle center points. The angles between the circles are also calculated, using the constructed circle center point as the apex.

3 PCD.png

PCD 3.xml

Prompts the user to measure a plane and three circles, then constructs a best fit circle through the circle centers.

4 PCD Angle.png

PCD 4 & Angles.xml

Prompts the user to measure a plane and four circles, then constructs a best fit circle through the circle center points. The angles between the circles are also calculated, using the constructed circle center point as the apex.

4 PCD.png

PCD 4.xml

Prompts the user to measure a plane and four circles, then constructs a best fit circle through the circle centers.

5 PCD Angle.png

PCD 5 & Angles.xml

Prompts the user to measure a plane and five circles, then constructs a best fit circle through the circle center points. The angles between the circles are also calculated, using the constructed circle center point as the apex.

5 PCD.png

PCD 5.xml

Prompts the user to measure a plane and five circles, then constructs a best fit circle through the circle centers.
