Mean Caliper in VBAI

Status: New



The caliper function does not create accurate results, in general, repeatability is very bad.

I think this can be improved by adding a "mean caliper" functionality.

Currently, there is only min-max caliper functionality which is not working when looking for average caliper measurement.


I use geometry step as a workaround, use Find Edge to locate edges, Distance function and finally Calculator step to calculate the average caliper/distance.


Mean Caliper function could be added to Caliper function for more repeatable results with ease of use.

The min/max is so touchy to use, I instead use a combination of edge tools and geometry tools for the exact reasons stated above.  Makes the caliper tool mostly a sales demo only tool.
