Sinumerik measurment cycles in 8.2.1

Hi everyone!
Have a question.
Why in new version of control 840d.ctl measurment cycles are now encrypted? It`s goes in patch notes as enchansments.
I`ve tried to simulate sample sin840d_probing_cycles.vcproject - it`s not going in subroutine, as earler.
How to know, what types of measurment cycles are realized here?

These cycles contain Siemens's intellectual property since they are almost the same code that runs on their controls.

CGTech has to strive to protect the IP of their industry partners.

Thanks a lot!
Maybe you know how quick change some parameters?
For example, when using probe, we could use a tip of the prob or the center point of the probe sphere. How to change it? Because in different versions cycles calculates different values. In version VERICUT 9.0.0 it was center of probe, in version 9.0.1 - probe tip.

Re: Sinumerik measurment cycles in 8.2.1

You should check $MNS_MEA_PROBE_LENGTH_RELATE for the current style of cycle call, or _CBIT[14] if you have the older version where the values are stated before calling the cycle.

These dictate if measuring from the center or tool tip of the sylus.  Check any Siemens probing manual and you will come across a good explanation.

Note, you must also set the probe the same way in Vericut as described by the parameter (end or center)

Re: Sinumerik measurment cycles in 8.2.1

Didn`t find $MNS_MEA_PROBE_LENGTH_RELATE and changing parameter _CBIT[14] does not effect.
Now we are using 9.0.1 version and also have 9.1.1 (but just it`s in test mode), i`ve not found there too.
