Leapfrog the Arm Over the Tube

  • VTube-LASER can leapfrog the arm in the middle of any measurement. To accurately leapfrog the arm, it is necessary to pause the regular measurement, and measure 3 points in space using the ball probe or laser before and after the leap. Then, after the leap, the arm measures the same points in the same order.

  • Any number leaps can be combined to measure any distance.

Start a Leapfrog Measurement

Press the Move button in the guide box at any time during a measurement.
