  • Boundary

    We have a customer that is wanting us to report the boundary of a slot.
    We are reporting the size and the true position, but that is not the same
    as boundary. Does anyone know how to report/incorporate this into
    our report???

    The only thing I can think of is to run a scan on the slot profile and report that. Of course, why they want this is beyond me. They have the location and size, if both are in tolerance, then the boundary SHOULD be in tolerance. Kind of sounds to me like they are trying to find a way to drag their feet to avoid accepting parts at this time, I have seen THAT way too many times in the past.

      If you are working with a round slot and you want report the actual location of the surfaces themselves, plane the two sides of the slot and report their position. Then use circles for the radii and report their location with either the plus or minus radius check box in the tolerance edit window. If you are working with a square slot plane each of the sides and report their locations.

        Well are they wanting to know the perimeter of the slot *OR* is there a "Boundary" notation connected to the FCF? If it is the later, they are probably giving you two different tolerances. One for the width of the slot and one for the length of the slot. Either way, Kmcmm's method is the correct way to go for reporting. HTH
