Leapfrog the Arm Over the Tube

  • As of version 1.91 (June 30, 2014), VTube-LASER can leapfrog the arm over the tube in the middle of any measurement. In order to accurately leapfrog the arm over the tube, it is necessary to pause the regular measurement and measure 3 more more points in space using the ball probe before and after the leap or move. Then, after the leap, the arm measures the same points in the same order.

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

Leapfrog Kit

It is also possible to move the tube if you attach the targets securely to the tube, then use the leapfrog feature. For example, you can use a standard metal spring clamp to attach to the tube, then place the magnetic target on the clamp handle.
