Repositioning Flexijet is achieved by defining a minimum of 2 points, then moving the Flexijet and re-measuring 2 of those points.

To reposition Flexijet:

Define location (Set location before moving Flexijet)

  1. From the Flexijet Ribbon, click on the ‘3D Locations’ button.
    Flexijet Stone 3D Location button
  1. Now, select the ‘Define’ button. Or, press ‘Define location’ on the Flexijet screen. NOTE: Name is optional.

  1. Measure to define location points using a remote control. The points should be at approximately the height of the Flexijet, but at slightly different heights. The points should largest horizontal distance between them as possible. A minimum of 2 points is needed, but more points can be defined as desired.

  1. After measuring the desired amount of relocation points, press ‘Esc’ button on the Flexijet or the ‘Confirm’ button to end the command.
  1. Now you can move the Flexijet to a new position, where the Flexijet is able to measure at least 2 of the defined location points. The ‘Shock Sensor’ warning message will appear on the Flexijet and in Flexijet Stone, warning that the Flexijet has been moved.

Resuming location (Resuming after moving the Flexijet)

  1. Select ‘3D Locations’. Now, select the number of points to be used to be re-measured (2 recommended), and click on ‘Resume’. With the checkmark next to ‘Automatic Leveling’ selected, the Flexijet will Auto-level, and is ready to re-measure the location points.
    Or, select ‘Relocation (2 points)’ on the Flexijet’s touchscreen.

  1. You may re-measure any of previously defined relocation points, in any order. Flexijet will automatically determine which points have been measured and interpolate Flexijet’s new position. If Flexijet cannot determine which point is which, it may prompt for additional information.
  1. The command window will read ‘Location Active, and display the interpreted accuracy of the measured points.

Information about repositioning:

  • Always use the Xbox Controller, Flexijet Smart Remote, or the on-screen controller when relocating for accuracy!
  • A minimum of 2 relocation points must be measured to define a location, but additional points can be added now, or later in order to allow for repositioning from multiple positions. (Single points can be added if a minimum of 2 points already exist in the file)
  • Flexijet will measure each of these points 5 times for added precision (with a clicking sounds followed by the measurement chime).
  • Location points should placed on different walls if possible, and with as much horizontal distance between them as possible.
  • Location points should be placed at different vertical elevations. For example, point 1 might be set on the first wall at 40” off the ground, point 2 on wall 2 at approximately 48” off the ground, etc.
  • Naming location points is not required in versions and later. You may still choose to name your locations if you would like to manually select the points, but the name is not needed when selecting the points automatically.

Repositioning with 2 points vs 3 points

  • it is recommended to use 2 points with Auto-Levelling to resume a location whenever possible for greater precision and ease.
  • Resuming location with 3 points is only recommended when Flexijet has been manually levelled. Example: measuring a on a boat, or measuring a reception desk in a shop on a pallet.
  • Resuming location with 2 points and Auto-Levelling is more accurate in most situations as slight variations are not amplified over time, maintaining level over the course of a measurement.

Repositioning messages

Two possible locations found

  • If both measurement points are set at the exact same vertical height, a pop-up window will open asking to click on the first point re-measured while resuming the location (while resuming the location). Select ‘click on the point’, and click on the first measured location point in the drawing to allow Flexijet to determine its location.
    Two possibl location positions found!

Could not find location.

  • In the rare event that relocation was unsuccessful or Flexijet cannot determine which measurement points have been re-measured, you will be prompted to ‘Measure again’, or to ‘Pick points Manually’. An extremely fine tolerance of ‘Maximum allowable deviation’ may also cause Flexijet cause this message.

General Preferences with Relocation annotated

Triangle has too acute an angle – Repositioning with 3 points
Relocation the chosen triange has a too acute angle! warning

  • When setting and resuming a location with 3 points, it’s important that the location points are spread out in as wide as a triangle as possible. When resuming, Flexijet does not use the data from the internal auto-levelling sensor, and instead relies upon the triangulation of the 3 points to determine it’s location, and for this reason, the 3 points must form as wide and even a triangle as possible. For example, resuming a location with 3 points where all 3 points are at the same elevation on the same wall is not possible as they do not form a triangle.
