Collision Protection is a safety system that that stops the CNC when it enters the collision area near the X-ray tube. A small shield icon in the bottom left corner of the screen indicates what state it is in. Sometimes it is necessary to disable Collision Protection to get the sample close enough to the tube for a good resolution. To toggle Collision Protection on or off, click on the shield icon.

Shield Icon Indicator:

  • Green shield: CNC is not in the collision area.
  • Red shield: Collision Protection is active and the CNC is in the collision area.
  • Red 'X' over shield: Collision Protection has been disabled. Be cautious when moving the CNC to prevent collision.
