Where is the Data stored for the camera locate?
Specifically when I teach a part (Lets say a ring/Circle) I have to add the Diameter and Height of each part I want to locate.
Rather than teaching potentially hundreds of Cam locates for different sized parts (all are rings/circles). I want to edit the data for the part size prior to running the cam locate.

    Unfortunately it is not possible to set a parametric model via a variable. It will share your need to our development team to see if we can implement this in the future.

    So I tried teaching a cam locate for each part (93) in total!
    The program is ridiculously long and when trying to run it it just crashes the Polyscope
    I need a better solution than having so many Cam locates.

    Any update from the development team?

    Indeed 93 camlocate is too much. I open a support ticket so that we try to find a better solution.

    I am having a similar issue with my set up. I am wondering if I can add an HMI where the operator can add the outer diameter of the part they are running.

    It is not possible to change the parametric model of the camera via a variable. At the moment the only solution we have to manage different size is to create a camlocate for each size.
     Il you have a lot of different size you can create a program for each size and there for decrease the number of camlocate in a program.
