Issue Details

I recently purchased the Vision Development Module which comes with the NI Calibration Training software to calibrate my camera. When I go through the steps in using the "Camera Model" feature, my images are not properly calibrated. 

Solution

This is because the first image you upload is going to be the base calibration image. If you set an angled image as your first calibration image, your camera will try to calibrate based off of that image. For example, uploading a grid image similar to this will be the base image for calibrating:
Once this image is done you can add in different images to complete the calibration process.
