probe output

Dear sir,
I have one doubt ,please help. we have 60 degree probe the prespex shoe was thickness reduced, due to continuous friction . the output of probe wavelength was changed into 65 degree. how can i draw DAC.? for that what is the formula for that..?

I think that first, your probe is useless because if I remember norms says 60+/-2 degrees.
And to draw a DAC, methods never change and there is no formula

If the code allows you to work with an angle outside of the 60 degree+-, then your calibrations, including regenerating your DAC, must be redone.
Several things have changed, not just your angle, but also your index point and most likely sensitivity.

Most codes would not allow you to use such a drifted angle from standard. You should recondition the probe or the wedge by adding a new wear sole, but before that you should bring back the original wedge angle to the original value. I warmly not suggest to just use sand paper for doing this.
