Flexijet 3D Next Generation has a shock sensor that registers the movements or accelerations of the tripod, in the case of being bumped or moved. Should the accelerations exceed a certain value, FlexiCAD puts out an appropriate warning message. In this case, one can assume that the tripod was nudged, and care should be taken to ascertain if the Flexijet’s position has been changed. This can be done by projecting points for visual verification, or repositioning using location targets (if a position has been set previously). If the accuracy of a measurement in progress cannot be verified, it may be advisable to begin the measurement process again to ensure accuracy.
The sensitivity of the shock sensor can be set in the General Preferences section of FlexiCAD/Flexijet Stone software, which can be accessed on startup of the software, or by selecting “General Preferences” from the ‘File’ menu, which is marked with the Logo.
On a solid flooring surface, a value of approx. 120 is recommended, and on an unfavourable surface, such as soft wooden floors, a value of maximum 360. The shock sensor is more sensitive when a higher value is set.
