Read point is a very useful method in CMM programming, mostly used for a very quick initial alignment to eliminate manual probing routine. For PC-Dmis users, they are farmilar with the following codes:

PNT1 =FEAT/POINT,RECT
THEO/911.4438,251.2988,-746.2958,0,0,1
ACTL/2947.1987,720.2316,-832.5316,0,0,1
READPOINT/

This can also be done in DMIS codes:

F(PNT1) = FEAT/POINT,CART, 911.4438,251.2988,-746.2958,0,0,1

MEAS/POINT, F(PNT1), 0
