The Cube Squared Plus from Q-Mark is designed so that CMM users can quickly position adapter plates at virtually any angle. The device’s predecessor, the Cube Squared, adjusted the adapter plate’s cube to 90 degrees relative to the CMM’s X and Y axes. The Cube Squared Plus uses an engraved protractor and a series of ball detents for unlimited axial rotation of the cube to any angle.

The handheld device requires no additional tools. The user simply loosens the cube on the adapter plate, sets it to the desired angle and retightens it. The process takes one minute or less to complete, the company says.
