  • True Position of Square Slot on PC-DMIS VER.3.7

    Hi everyone,

    My trouble is that; I'm working on part (not model) and i need to inquiry true position of a square slot on part, problem is that on PC-DMIS Ver. 3.7, u need two circle in order to create a slot and then inquiry true position of it, for the attached file what kind of method can i use any help please ?

    Thanks in advance...

    Unless you have the cheap level of Pcdmis (NOT CAD++) there is an option for SQUARE SLOT in DCC FEATURES.

      I believe you will need to dimension that with 2 TP dimensions. One for X and one for Y (or for whatever the appropriate axes are).

      Other times I can barely see.

            Not at the CMM right now but I didn't think you could report position on a slot.

            Probably have to create two generic circles to get any Position results. One with the diameter = to the slot length. The other with the diameter = to the slot width. X and Y's = to the center of the slot.

                ok, that said, do a pt at one and, a pt at the other, const a midpoint, tp out just that one axis at a time. Do the same on the other 2 sides, repeat.

                    This applies to RFS Jim. The slot is @ MMC

                    The auto square slot will do it.

                      I really like how the two TP callouts for the same hole use the datums in a different order.

                        Perhaps there was a dyslexic engineer involved!

                        You should one of the prints I just received. It can be quite interesting what they (engineers) come up with.

                            For example, one I am dealing with right now.....

                            Imagine a flat, rectangular piece of sheet metal.... (just so you can get the impression). Now, image a flange on the 'rear', that is only 1/3 the width of the part, and it is on the 'left', now imagine a flange on the 'front' of the part, that is 2/3 the width of the part, and it is on the 'right'. Now, put a TP tolerance with MMC on the gap, front-to-back, between them. These 2 flanges do not over-lap left-to-right anywhere, yet they want a TP-MMC of the gap.

                            (see below, maybe it will help) Where the F=flange, N=no flange, B=base between the flanges. They want TP of the 'between'

                            Code:
                            FFFFNNNNNNNNN  /\ TP in this direction
                            BBBBBBBBBBBBB  |
                            BBBBBBBBBBBBB  |
                            NNNNNFFFFFFFF  \/

                              Oh, and how about THIS callout (same print, and this is no joke!):
