• Parallelism, perpendicularity, angularity, symmetry, concentricity, runout, position, and profile

Vision system updates
• New CAD-teach vision edge point
• DCC re-measure for faster joystick programming
• Save composite image output after image stitching
• Set runtime images as graphical report background
• New Max Focus Point image tool
