1 About CALYPSO 5.2 - Notes and Familiar Problems


Please read the following notes before installing this software!


1.1 Important information


O-Inspect with Rotary Table 5.2 09.05.2011
While creating a measurement plan with an O-Inspect equipped with a rotary table (RT), the RT should be
set to 0, even if the RT functionality is not utilized. This can be achieved by calling RT-Reference (the RT
axis must be valid) or temporarily deactivating the RT altogether:
Pulldown menu > Extras > Settings > CMM > Rotary Table > Activate Rotary Table Functionality to OFF

As a default the RT is deactivated when a new plan is opened (by 'RT activated for this plan in the rotary
table settings page), however, by switching between optical and tactile probing, the internal incorporation of
the RT angle is activated and can lead to incorrect rotated values for features measured.


Circumnavigation with C98 Controllers 5.2 01.03.2011
Circular arc movements (e.g. for outer cylinder features) are always carried out in V-max on Coordinate
Measuring Machines using the C98 controller even if the controller key switch is set to 'MAN' and the CMM
speed should not exceed 70 mm/s. This behaviour is caused by the controller firmware.


Option FlyScan with Sensor type XXT TL2 5.2 01.03.2011
The FlyScan function is no longer supported for application with XXT TL2 sensors.


Stylus data no longer valid when updating CALYPSO 4.0 or older to CALYPSO 5.2 5.0 20.05.2010
Existing stylus and configuration data can no longer be used when updating from older CALYPSO versions.
This concerns CALYPSO versions 4.0 as well as all older versions. If specific data has to be retained, please
contact our Software Hotline.


Stylus System Data Import 5.0 20.05.2010
Styli data exported with version 4.4.04.xx from systems with Zeiss or Renishaw index head (e.g. RDS, DSE,
MIH, PH9 and PH10) may not be imported into newer versions! The useability of imported styli when used on
a CMM is different than usage in simulation mode (without CMM). For use on a CMM re-qualification is
required, in simulation the styli can be used without re-qualifying.


ViScan Scanning unknown Contour 5.0 20.05.2010
With version 5.2 the scanning direction of the optical scanning of unknown contours has been changed. If
necessary existing measurement plans must be adjusted.





CALYPSO Copyright 1996-2011 Carl Zeiss IMT GmbH. All rights reserved. 12.09.2011
ViScan Important Note for all users of F25, O-Inspect and CMMs equipped with ViScan 5.0 20.05.2010
Please take note of the following information regarding existing optical probe data (F25, O-Inspect or ViScan
camera data) created with CALYPSO 4.7.02 or older.

Any existing optical probe data originating from CALYPSO 4.7.02 or older must be deleted before using
Release 5.2. The required camera data must be re-qualified with Release 5.2.

Trying to switch to older camera data with CALYPSO 5.2 will be denied and can result in output of various
error messages.





Shaft Radius of the Reference Sphere 5.0 20.05.2010
The Shaft Radius of the Reference Sphere on the 'Reference sphere management' page must be set to a
value large enough to cover all of the stylus diameters in use:


In order to prevent collision during probe qualification the 'Shaft Radius' setting must be
increased to a value that sufficiently takes into consideration the largest stylus radius in
use (see D2 for the red sphere illustrated).

However, increasing the radius will also reduce the amount of possible angular positions
for qualification (RDS,DSE etc.). A workaround to this situation is achieved by saving
multiple copies of one and the same reference sphere with a varying shaft radius and
selecting the sphere according to the requirements for probe qualification.


RCCAA 5.0 20.05.2010
RCCAA qualified stylus systems must not and need not be re-qualified using the list qualification method.


Sphere Coverage Angle for qualification of passive sensors 5.0 20.05.2010
The Sphere Coverage angle for a full qualification of passive sensors (XXT, SP25) is limited to a minimum of
180, values lower than 180 are ignored. In order to qualify smaller styli a reference sphere with a smaller
diameter (e.g. a stylus of which the radius is known) is required. Following a full qualification it is possible to
CALYPSO Copyright 1996-2011 Carl Zeiss IMT GmbH. All rights reserved. 12.09.2011
re-qualify a stylus using the regular reference sphere. For this a lower sphere coverage angle may be
selected and a 6-point qualification is performed.


Interruption of VAST-XXT CNC-Qualification 4.10 17.11.2009
Interrupting a CNC-qualification of a VAST-XXT, will result in undefined probe data! In this case the stylus
must be re-qualified manually completely before using it for measurement or re-running the CNC-
qualification. Please use 'Qualify passive stylus, the selection 'Geometry Re-qualification is not sufficient.



Special characters in Stylus System Names 4.10 17.11.2009
Special characters must not be used in stylus names and stylus system names! Under no circumstances
may apostrophes (' ') or quotation marks (" ") be used in names for styli or stylus systems nor may these
names begin with a special character (e.g. ) or end with a dot! Underscores ('_') may be used as
separators.


ViScan Upgrade 4.10 17.11.2009
After upgrading from older versions to CALYPSO 4.10 or higher the ViScan sensor must be re-qualified
using the chrome template and the reference sphere after installing! LN_653.


ViScan Manual CNC Mode 4.10 17.11.2009
After focussing during manual CNC-runs the optical probing method must be manually re-selected.


ViScan - Grafics Adapters 4.10 17.11.2009
The Grafics adapters ATI FireGL 8800 and NVIDIA Quadro FX1100 are not compatible with CALYPSO in
combination with the ViScan sensor as from version 5.0. The camera image is not displayed correctly in the
graphics window.


.pdf Output Merge Function
GhostScript is required for merging .pdf results, version 8.56 or newer is required for error free application.


Automatic configuration of temperature sensors
You have to reconnect CALYPSO with the controller after adding or removing a temperature sensor, if
automatic configuration is activated in the C99 controller.

1.3 Notes on the Application


Device Administration
Please ensure that all CMM connections are closed (by closing traffic light windows) before removing a
device from the 'Measuring-Systems' page under 'Extras', 'Workroom', 'CMM'.


Calculating the alignment
When calculating an alignment, the evaluation setting ISO 5459 is not taken into consideration if the
compatibility mode 'Calculate Alignment as Base Alignment' is set to 'On'.


Importing dimension tolerances from ProE
Importing data from ProE is still faulty. Dimension tolerances have no reference and no coordinates. This
problem will be resolved with a CALYPSO ServicePack.


Selecting CMM System Setup for search path to nominal position
This setting is used for using the respective CMM default value for the probing search path. Previously the
value 5 (with **) was displayed as suggestion when selecting the default setting in the editor. However this
was not effective because of a limiting value prompt; the current CMM default value applied. Without
changing the measurement plan, 'CMM System Setup is now displayed as default setting (suggestion), the
performance does not change. If a numerical value is now given as search path, this value is effective even if
it is smaller than the previous limiting value. Too small a value should be avoided.


'Missing Bore' function with probing problems in bores
Difficult probing conditions for individual bores can make finishing CNC measurements difficult and delay
their completion. To avoid this, starting from CALYPSO 4.10, the Missing Bore function can be activated. If
an incorrect probing leads to a cancellation, the bore is recognized as Missing Bore and is omitted with a
renewed CNC Start (with Reset Old Results). If measurement of the bore is to be tried again, then the
actual values for this bore have to be deleted beforehand.


Probing Point Distribution in Slot Features
The distribution of points in slot features changed from CALYPSO 4.6 onwards. Now the same logic as for
circles is used. Should an evaluation of a slot feature not be possible using an odd number of probings, an
additional probing point should be added in order to have an even number of probing points.


Measurement Plan Compatibility using Multiple-Strategy
Application of the multiple-strategy function in new measurement plans created with CALYPSO 4.4.04 or
newer or opening and saving existing measurement plans with CALYPSO 4.4.04 or newer will prevent the
usability of these plans with older CALYPSO versions!



Back to overview
CALYPSO Copyright 1996-2011 Carl Zeiss IMT GmbH. All rights reserved. 12.09.2011

Optimized Articulating Probes
A software enhancement was introduced with CALYPSO 4.4.04 for coordinate measuring machines
equipped with articulating probes (e.g. RDS, DSE, MIH, PH9 and PH10. This enables the usage of all tactile
probes as MasterProbe. The definition of the RDS probe holders was simplified.


myCALYPSO- Language Selection
myCALYPSO can be used in German and in English. When switching from one language to the other, the
following changes must be carried out by the user:
1. Depending on the language selected, the respective 'myCALYPSO.arn' file must be saved under
\CALYPSO\home\om\workarea\myCALYPSO_Macros\autorun\. Use the Windows Explorer to copy the
desired file from the \de subfolder (for German) or the \en subfolder (for English).
2. The language dependent Macro files for macro 121 must be copied to the folder
\CALYPSO\home\om\workarea\myCALYPSO_Macros\inspections\1_macro_al\121\. Use the Windows
Explorer to copy the desired files from the \Macro_121_de subfolder (for German) or the \Macro_121_en
subfolder (for English) to this location.


Measurement Plan Compatibility 'Sphere' with Circular Sections
Measurement plans created with versions older than CALYPSO 4.4 which contain spheres with circular
sections should be checked for the correct start angle in these features!


Distance to Proberack
The preset default value for the distance to the proberack during stylus system changing of XXT and SP25
(for empty probe) was increased from 0 mm to 70 mm with CALYPSO 4.4. All holders which are created new
for XXT and SP25 are now preassigned with 70 mm. This can be adapted subsequently for each holder by
the Master user.

CALYPSO Copyright 1996-2011 Carl Zeiss IMT GmbH. All rights reserved. 12.09.2011

Side Styli and List Qualification
With the RDSCAA or DSECAA option, side styli can now also be qualified semi-automatically (except for
XXT sensors!). Please note: List qualification cannot be applied for stylus systems with side styli! However
as a result, on CMMs with articulating probes after a software update to CALYPSO 4.4.04 or newer, all the
styli have to be subsequently completely re-qualified! If you are using the RDSCAA or DSECAA option, it is
imperative that the MasterProbe can be used for the qualification of the fitting position. Passive sensors such
as XXT and SP25 cannot be used for this. To facilitate this, the List Qualification can be used (not for stylus
systems with side styli! ). The procedure is described on the following pages.



1. Open the Probing system qualification window


CALYPSO Copyright 1996-2011 Carl Zeiss IMT GmbH. All rights reserved. 12.09.2011



2. By clicking on the

icon, the dialog for setting
the RDS axis is opened.













Back to overview








3. Select the Styli list tab:


CALYPSO Copyright 1996-2011 Carl Zeiss IMT GmbH. All rights reserved. 12.09.2011
4. By clicking on the


icon, the message displayed
on the right will appear.

Select Overwrite and click
OK.




5. Close the window for setting the RDS axis with 'Close' and in the ''Probe
system qualification' window start the List Qualification using the caliper icon.


6. In the following dialog, please select List Qualification:



You are prompted to set the index holder to the angle A 0 B 0. You are then prompted to make a probing at
this angle position. This process also takes place if you have not defined a stylus in the angle position 0.
Using this position, the lengths of all the other styli in this stylus system are calculated and automatically
qualified.

4 Installation Instructions

4.1 Installing the CALYPSO Basic DVD


Please refer to all notes regarding the installation in chapter 1.2.

CALYPSO is a single-user application. It cannot be installed on a network and used as a client-server
application.

In order to install CALYPSO you must have full local Administrator rights.

If you are performing an update of an existing CALYPSO installation, the existing installation has to be
uninstalled first. Existing data such as measurement plans, probe data or other CMM-specific data will not be
deleted by uninstalling CALYPSO. However we still recommend creating backup copies of your data at
regular intervals.

Uninstall is performed using the Windows Uninstall function. In Windows, click on 'Start' and select
'CALYPSO' via 'Settings\Control Panel\Add or Remove Programs' and then click on 'Remove'.

When the DVD is inserted, the installation routine usually starts automatically. If this is not the case, use the
Windows Explorer to select 'CALYPSO.exe' on the DVD and start the installation by double-clicking.



Select 'Install' and 'CALYPSO'.

CALYPSO 5.2 will automatically install Windows Installer 4.5, dotNET Framework 3.5 SP1, SQL Server
2008, a PDF printer set and the Zeiss License Manager 1.8.0.0 as prerequisites should these not already be
available on the target system. This usually requires several system reboots and can take a long time
(especially the dotNET Framework).

Simultaneous installation of several CALYPSO versions on one computer is not supported! Error-free
functioning of CALYPSO is only guaranteed it there is just one version installed!

CALYPSO Copyright 1996-2011 Carl Zeiss IMT GmbH. All rights reserved. 12.09.2011
4.2 Installing CALYPSO ServicePacks and Patches


Required program modifications and additions are provided as ServicePacks or Patches. These can arrive
by eMail, on data medium or via download. The procedure is basically the same for all media types.

If you have received a CALYPSO ServicePack or a Patch together with the CALYPSO Basic DVD, the
ServicePack or Patch must be installed after the installation of the Basic DVD.


Prerequisite for the installation of a ServicePack or a Patch is always an existing installation of the
corresponding basic version from a DVD. The version currently installed can be seen in CALYPSO in the
Miscellaneous menu. The version currently installed is also automatically output in the 'Error Report. You
reach this via the 'Extras menu.





How to install a ServicePack:

- First exit CALYPSO if this is running.

- If the ServicePack is on a CD:
The installation routine starts automatically once the CD is inserted. You only need to click once on the
'Install ServicePack button and the installation is carried out in full. If the CD does not start automatically,
open your Windows Explorer and start the CALYPSO _ServicePack.exe by double-clicking.

- If you have received the ServicePack per email (setup.exe):
Copy the setup.exe file to your local hard disk and start the file by double-clicking in the Windows Explorer.

- CALYPSO's system files will be updated the first time the program is called after installation of the
CALYPSO Service Pack. This may take some time. CALYPSO asks you to close, to wait for a moment and
to restart.

Two settings: one is a fixed number of digits, the second is one digit more than the
tolerance range
Benefit: Individual calculation and output of single characteristics
Example:
Tolerance range (TR) > 1,0 then 0.1 mm accuracy for rounding
E.g. TR 1.0 actual = 2.143 rounded = 2.1
Tolerance range (TR) >= 0.1 then 0,01 mm accuracy for rounding
