  • Best Fit Alignment

    Wondering what process to use for a best fit alignment. Using UG CAD model to check some small parts that are finish cut before heat treat. Performed a manual alignment, then went around outside of part and took several points on each side, recall these points to Best Fit alignment with equal weights. Then perform T deviation hits in the same areas after the Best Fit alignment and it still shows a shift in the part.

    Using 3.5MR2 CAD++

    Any ideas?

    Generally the only time I use BEST FIT alignments is after a manual alignment and a DCC alignment when a series of holes (5 or 10 etc. etc.) is called out to themselves (1 of the holes is 0,0 + a possible rotation to another of the holes in the group). I don't know if that points you in the right direction. If you want a best fit to the part itself that can be done either the way you have gone about it or utilizing the iterative alignment method.

      We ended up using an iterative alignment. Thanks for your help.
