  • Script to insert clearance planes in auto features

    Anyone else ever get tired of having to/ forgetting to re-insert clearance planes in between hits within OD auto circles after a fine tune or edit ? Seems to get me in trouble I’m just wondering if there is a way to run a script that would automatically search through a PP and insert clearance planes in between hits of all OD type auto circles?

    First, there is a button in auto circle to make Circular Paths between hits so it arcs around the OD, staying the prehit distance away. It's in the middle, hover over the buttons until you find it.

    If you are programming an OD with wacky protrusions sticking out of it, so it seriously needs clearance plane navigation between every hit, don't use auto-circles - use auto points and construct the circles. This actually makes it far easier to tweak hit location also.

    Save the scripting for hard stuff.

      I’m aware of the circular moves between hits, But a lot of our parts are 30in+ in diameter, and being we use readpoint alignments, operator error becomes an issue if they don’t have the part centered on the table. And my company is into such an array of different applications, we can’t use any kind of permanent fixturing. But, I do use the auto vector points quite often, so that’s actually an easier solution. Thanks for the input. I’ve just recently taken that 60 dollar online VB class on hexagons website, so I’m trying to practice to get more familiar with scripting in PCDmis.

        Hi, unrelated-i've seen someone else mention this class you're taking, but i can't find it on Hex's website. Can you post a link if possible?

            I’ve finished going through it , if you don’t really know much about VB, like myself , I found it very hard to follow, and vague. I mean being it was only $60, you can’t expect it to be very informative I suppose . Just a side note. You need to have VB studio express installed on your computer. If you buy it, post your thoughts on it if you will.

                I have not. Didn't even know it was available until you posted.

              That class isn't for teaching VB it is more for using VB with PC-DMIS. There are a lot of online resources, including this forum, that can help. I have gotten very far going the google/forum route (I bought Microsoft VB & C# books also), but it can be frustratingly slow. I can't speak on behalf of community college classes, but that would be a more structured approach.

                That is the way my job is going to go. I think they want to send me to the local community college for it. After that, I'm going to do the online Hexagon course. (I'm the one who originally posted about it)

                I'm jealous.. I've wanted to take some classes at the local community college. My work is covering a third of the cost for relevant classes so i've been waiting to have a little money/time freed up
