Enable and Add Comments to a QuickTools Program Using CAM2 Measure

Quick Steps

The key for adding comments in a QuickTools program is to click the Record icon Record Icon to enable the Comments button. Once the button is enabled, you can add comments anywhere in your QuickTools program.


Adding comments to QuickTools programs is a good way to give operators taking measurements important information about the part, how to take measurements, or anything else you want them to know. Comments can help increase the repeatability of your measurement processes.

A QuickTools program records feature definitions, pictures, pointer targets, and instructions that guide operators through a measurement process.Operators can play a QuickTools program at any time and as often as they want. See the CAM2 Measure 10 Training Manual or CAM2 Measure 10 User Manuals for details about creating QuickTools programs.

A comment is a text message that the operator sees when the QuickTools program runs. The operator must  click OK in the comment before proceeding  to the next step.


Please review this table before you begin to ensure your success.
