How do I navigate around obstacles using CMM Position Points?

The majority of navigation can be handled with the three default tools, Clearance Planes, Clearance Distance, and Retract Distance. Occasionally, there can be a need for tools other than the defaults. To use CMM Position Points, open the last feature measured prior to the desired stylus system moves. Park the stylus for that feature near the final Retract Distance or Clearance Distance move. Open the Strategy for that feature. Take note of the active stylus and depress the button on top of the right joystick. This will create a CMM Position in the Strategy.Move the Stylus System to the next desired position and depress the button again.
