Missing Stereo Vision Calibration Grid PDF Using Vision Builder for Automated Inspection (VBAI)

Issue Details

I can't find the printable calibration grid to set up a stereo vision application in Vision Builder for Automated Inspection (VBAI) software. It should be located at C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\Vision\Vision Documentation\CalibrationGrid

Where else could this be located?

Solution

VBAI does not natively support stereo vision algorithms. These algorithms are only supported in the Vision Development Module which is a toolkit for LabVIEW Full and Professional. 

This article discusses the NI options for depth perception and stereo vision applications. 

Additional Information

If you must use VBAI, you can create a custom LabVIEW VI that calls the stereo vision functions and then use the Run VI step in VBAI to call that program to return depth information back to your VBAI inspection.
