MPM Momentum Grid Lock Tooling Manual Mode | 24 April, 2019

I have a support question concerning setting the gridlock tooling in manual mode on a MPM Momentum Elite. I am printing the top side (bottom is populated with parts) of a thin, flimsy PCB. The Grid lock tooling bows the PCB upwards in Auto mode, because of the of the parts on the bottom side of the PCB. I figured a fix for this would be to set the Gridlock to manual mode, and lock the pins with the PCB held level. I followed the directions in the help file, which states to set tooling to “Grid Lock Manual” in the tooling tab of the program , load board to print height, then “Set Grid Tooling” under Utilities-Tooling Operations. My problem, is the software never enables the “Set Grid Tooling” command. It stays greyed out. Am I missing something? Software version is 3.6.1. Any help would be appreciated. Attached is a picture of the menu item in question.

With the upcoming of the traditional peak season(Q3), a rising price among the mainland factories, and a continual rise in the bronze price in the London Metal Exchange in August, there is also a trend for the rise in the quotation of the PCB’s upstream products in August, such as: Electronic grade glass fiber cloth and copper foil, with the copper foil showing the most tendency.

We solved the issue. A stencil must be clamped in the machine to allow the command. The stencil serves to hold the board level, while the pins are set. The machine is smarter than us.... :/
