Notes
NOTE
We recommend to read the operating instructions before using CALIGO
. You will find more information on using CALIGO.
Existing CALIGO installations
You may install different versions of CALIGO in parallel. Please note the
following:
– If, when starting CALIGO for the first time, the existing stylus data
base is from CALIGO 1.10 or older, this stylus data base will be converted into a new format. The old database remains unchanged.
From that moment, the two CALIGO versions use their specific database. Any operation (qualification, creation, deletion, rack assignment, etc.) performed on styli or stylus systems applies only to the
CALIGO version used for the process.
– Work sessions saved with a higher CALIGO version cannot be
opened in previous CALIGO versions.
Import function for MDB files
MDB import is possible if the following conditions are met:
– With CALIGO 32-bit version
– With CALIGO 64-bit version and a 64-bit MS Office product installed.
– With CALIGO 64-bit version and 64-bit AccessDataBaseEngine installed.
NOTE
If you have installed a 32-bit MS Office product, MDB import with the
CALIGO 64-bit version is not possible. To use the MDB import option,
uninstall all 32-bit MS Office components and install the MS Office 64Bit product or the 64-bit AccessDataBaseEngine.

CALIGO 2.4
Application notes
“CALIGO DMIS” option
If you use the “CALIGO DMIS” option, please note the following additional information:
– For scanning with the EagleEye navigator sensor, you cannot use the
optical feature templates and the toolbox.
– The scanning and rotary table options are not supported.
– The EagleEye and FalconEye sensors are not supported.
Nominal-actual comparison
The evaluation procedure for the nominal-actual comparison has been
optimized such that there are no more artifacts on borders of faces.
Only the existing measured points will be evaluated. This may cause
gaps in the visualization of the false-color comparison which is, however, a correct result.
CMM navigation
Please bear in mind that features will be skipped during the measurement plan run if they cannot be evaluated. All features referenced to
these skipped features will also be ignored
Risk of collision
If no secure navigation path has been defined in the measurement plan,
there is a risk of collision.
Surface and curve evaluations
Due to the complex construction of the features Surface, Curve, Point
cloud registration, Nominal-actual comparison, and Point cloud
extraction, it is recommended to use the feature templates provided in
the toolbox, since these templates guarantee proper use.
CALIGO 2.4

Known problems
Known problems
GD&T (multiple datums)
Multiple datums from previous CALIGO versions get lost and have to be
generated as the respective feature in the measurement plan.
Stylus changer with invalid base system
and safety envelope
The following aspect has to be considered for the CNC start of a
CALIGO measurement plan with stylus changer and invalid base coordinate system:
make sure that the styli used are not changed automatically as long as
the base system is invalid.
The part located on the machine is not yet known to the navigation
function which therefore cannot work properly to avoid collisions. There
is a risk of collision.
Material thickness
The CAD converters do not provide the correct material thickness. This is
why the material thickness is not loaded from the CAD model.
Positioning in the workpiece coordinate
system (“CALIGO DMIS” option)
Movement is only possible in machine coordinates.
The workpiece coordinates are only displayed.
Truncated bookmarks in Adobe Reader
X or XI
When you open the PDF file of the CALIGO documentation in Adobe
Reader X or XI, the bookmarks may be truncated at the bottom. This is a
display problem of Adobe Reader X or XI. You can eliminate the problem by modifying the text size of the bookmark displayed.
1 Open the Bookmarks tab in Adobe Reader X or XI.

CALIGO 2.4
Known problems
2 Select Text Size " Small from the selection list of the Options icon.
PiWeb Basic Report
If you use round brackets () in the name of a PiWeb report, these brackets will be removed from the name by PiWeb BasicReporter when generating the report.
NOTE
This restriction has been eliminated for the new PiWeb reporting version.
PiWeb Reporting
If the name of the CAD model has more than 100 characters, PiWeb Reporting cannot be started.
Therefore, assign a new name to the CAD model with a maximum of
100 characters:
– Rename the CAD model before importing it to CALIGO.
- or – Rename the CAD model in the Data Explorer after the import.
Manual measurement of the iterative
alignment
If you perform manual iterative alignment in the base system, you must
bear the following in mind:
If you click the Go one step back icon in the Manual measurement
dialog box, not only the last measured point will be deleted but also all
previously measured points. You must then repeat the manual measurement.
CAD import
In rare cases, it may occur that a CAD model in IGES format cannot be
imported into CALIGO. You can eliminate the problem and perform the
import by selecting a higher model quality for the import.
CALIGO 2.4
1-5
Known problems
When importing into CALIGO assembly models in Siemens NX format
from version 8.5, containing (unspecified) unicode characters in the attributes, CALIGO will not react anymore. Some imported models in
Siemens NX format from version 8.5 with segments from a JT import
contain no geometries.
Surface and curve measurement
If you have used CALIGO 1.10 or a previous CALIGO version to create in
your measurement plan a surface or curve measurement with a nominal
system assigned to it, you will have to regenerate or recreate the probing points for the surface or curve measurement in CALIGO 2.0.
Evaluating studs via point clouds
The algorithm for stud evaluations using point clouds has been modified. In exceptional cases, the calculation may fail but can be restored by
modifying the search radius.

DVD, please use the following installation procedure:
1. install the CALIGO DVD
2. install the CALIGO service pack
NOTE
It is always sufficient to install the latest service pack or patch, since
they always contain all previous modifications.
When updating CALIGO, you do not need to install the CALIGO DVD
first if you run the entire setup (CaligoSetup.exe).
You can request current CALIGO service packs from our CALIGO support
team. You will then get access to a download area to download the required service packs.
Please do not hesitate to contact our CALIGO support team if you have
further questions or need help for downloading the files.
For service pack or patch update to an existing release version, you can
run the entire CALIGO setup (CaligoSetup.exe) or a reduced setup (
CaligoCore.exe).
A reduced setup will update only those CALIGO components that are
subject to frequent modifications. These are, for example, the Caligo.exe
files, CALIGO function libraries and configuration files with current measuring-system data. A full setup will also install more recent versions of
the CAD core, the stylus system library and the system requirements for
setup (e.g. .net Framework Runtimes, C++-Redistributables, SQL server).
The configuration files of the measuring system are not deleted or overwritten; the base configuration files are just updated.
NOTE
