  • Leveling a cylinder

    I have a part with an id on its left side ie x- plane
    i do 16 hits 2 circles 2 depths construct a cylinder
    measuring from left to right

    Then i level this cylinder to x+
    Then i xyz origin this cylinder

    i repeat this procedure in DCC alignment

    Then i measure the two circles i used to create the cylinder
    and get readings within .0001 this is good

    But when i put the next part up
    it does not perform the leveling correctly
    i get up to .001 off in y and z

    any ideas thanks

    I would recommend more levels in your cylinder (at least 3)

    try that and see if it works better


    :::EDIT:::

    Also your form of the following parts will greatly influence the ZERO of a cylinder

      What kind of circles are you using? Measured or auto-circles?

        What is the distance between levels and why are you topless?

          my cylinder

          The distance between my circles which are "AUTO" circles with
          16 hits is .400 apart total of 32 hits
          I am topless because it is a rule you can't

              Set the depths of your circles using tour -X- (I believe that is the way you said it was setting) instead of using the depth (Set depth at Zero and adjust the location with your -X-) Then create your cylinder. It may be recoginizing the circles at the same level?

                    I also use a level cyl to the x about the z and then level cyl to the x about the y. This takes any error out of the axis that is perpendicular to the plane that is leveled and squares it up

                          Don't "cofuse" the software, it might explode. I would recommend a dictionary, but that might be a bit advanced.

                              For one thing, you can't set zero on ALL three axis of a cylinder, well I guess you can technically but it isn't a good idea.

                              Paul, you and Craiger are starting to wierd me out..... Put your dam.n shirts back on.
