Tip: Delay your measurement in QC-Gage 3.2??
We have been asked about this a few times so we finally added it to QC-Gage 3.2. When you're collecting data in QC-Gage, a picture of the plot with historical measurements is shown on the data entry screen. This is useful if you are looking at the past measurements, but what if you want to look at the measurement you just took? It typically happens so quickly that the focus moves to the next measurement before you get a chance to see how the plot looked when you took the measurement. To allow you to see the results, we have introduced an option to allow you to delay the screen x seconds before moving to the next measurement. This gives you a little time to see your measurement without having to backtrack.
How To Do It:
  1. In QC-Gage 3.2, go to Tools > Options > Validation.

  2. At the bottom of the screen, use the slider to select an amount of time to delay. The range is 0-3 seconds.

  3. Click OK.

When you measure your parts, you will notice that after the measurement occurs, the screen will then delay for the time specified and allowing you to look at the plot before proceeding.
How to Get It:

If you have QC-Gage 3.2, all you need to do is click Help > Run Update or download the latest update from our website.

If you have an earlier version of QC-Gage, then it's a great time to upgrade and take advantage of all the new features in QC-Gage 3.2. You can download version 3.2 and install it into a different folder to try it out before upgrading since multiple versions can coexist.
