For cylinder, cone, and sphere elements, automatic scan path and point distributions are available with the helix, circles, or surface lines strategies. On flat surfaces, scan paths are distributed in a particular shape (grid, star, or spiral), measured as an edge curve, or the measurement points can be distributed arbitrarily as a polyline.  During interactive measurement, scan paths or measurement points may be moved, deleted, or added in the 3D graphic using the mouse or a manual input field. These editing options and the opportunity to adjust the measurement strategy, light levels or sensor settings are available from a properties dialog even after the scan path distribution has been taught. All of the required measurements, including analysis, can be programmed using the CAD model. From there the scan path and point distributions will be adjusted and tested individually either offline or online. If there is no CAD model, the entire measurement sequence will be completed with the minimum number of points required for the geometric element in question. These distributions can be modified at any time after the program has been completed.
