    What is the best way to offset for material thickness?

    TIA

    go to auto feature
    pick the advanced button
    put in part thickness value in the thicknes area.
    watch for positive or negative thickness values. The vector of the point tells which way it offsets.

      theoretical, is what I use. Someone can you refresh me on when to use Actual Thickness.

      Theoretical Thickness

      With Theo Thickness you have the ability to adjust the theoretical values by a chosen thickness in order to measure the opposite side of material

      Actual Thickness

      With Actl Thickness you have the ability to offset the target location for measurement, and then have the measured values adjusted along the theoretical vector by the thickness.

        OR:

        Theo gives you nominals based on the thickness you enter
        ACT gives you nominals still on the cad data, but the thickness is comped for just like the probe.

          Thanks Matt. So, Actual is good for when your tying to reproduce the numbers on the print. exp XYZ's Locations for critical points called out by the customer for PPAP.
