Save Views in a CMM Plan

The Views control allows the ability to change the Model view during the Auto Inspect process without returning to the computer to do it manually. This is particularly useful when measuring complex parts and assemblies that require the user to perform measurements from several different orientations. It helps visualize the path during programming and simulation, and informs the operator as the program runs on the machine.
