    Custom VPS templates (Visual Programming System)

    I bought HAAS VF-2SS and I'm trying to make custom VPS template for easy and faster programming.
    Is there a manual/tutorial for using excel template 'VPS Template.xls' witch already came with machine ?

    For now I figure out how to put images, how to write code but I cannot figure how to get variables from machine, how to calculate variables etc.
    Maybe someone know how to download existing VPS templates to PC/USB?

    I know this is an old thread but i'm really interested in programming my own vps codes.
    We have a new Haas VF2-SS where I also found the template. On my own I found out how to make some simple vps programs with variables.
    Does anyone have more documentation around this subject? How to program the vps like Renishaw/haas own programs?

    Hello, I also played a bit with the template.xml. Here is an example of a position macro with max. 5 positions.

    Re: Custom VPS templates (Visual Programming System)

    The only thing I found was the template stored in the machine but I have no idea how to use the said template. If someone knows how to use the said template I'd be very grateful, I have a couple of different VPS templates I'd like to create.
