  • Reporting the Average of a Looped Dimension

    I am a Level 1 programmer trying to do Level 3 programming. I am writing a program to prove the repeatability of the ROMER calibration bar. I have the Loop completed with the dimension for the long length and the short length and it seems to work fine. I am trying to report the average of all 30 dimensions using this programming that I wrote. I couldn't write all 30 in one line for one variable, so I did 10 dimensions for three different variables. My other question, is there a way to shorten this up to one variable.

    ASSIGN/V2=ARRAY(DIM1[1].MEAS, DIM1[2].MEAS, DIM1[3].MEAS,...............)
    ASSIGN/V3=ARRAY(DIM1[11].MEAS, DIM1[12].MEAS, DIM1[13].MEAS,.........)
    ASSIGN/V4=ARRAY(DIM1[21].MEAS, DIM1[22].MEAS, DIM1[23].MEAS,..........)

    I'm not sure how to get it to report, so I don't know if it is actually working correctly. I just need to prove the average of the 30 dimensions are within the spec.

    I would try, inside the loop (if V1 is the loop variable !)
    Then after the end of the loop

      How do you get it to report the variable "V3"?

      I'm guessing what this does is add up all of the data in the array and divide it by the number of elements in the array? (in this case 30)
      I like.

    Insert a comment/report/ "Average dim is : "+V3
    or create a generic feature whose length is V3, and dimension it.

      May or may not need to subtract 1 from the LEN() could just be ASSIGN/V3=SUM(V2)/LEN(V2). That way you don't have to stick to 30 loops, it could be 1 to ∞.
