    Does anyone have a list of the abbreviations for the callouts?

    Probably, but I lost Anyone's phone number a few weeks ago in a tragic accident involving a creme brulee torch and several small furry animals. I tried calling Someone but it appears they are having a nervous breakdown and won't emerge from under the desk long enough to answer the phone. I emailed Somebody, Something, and Nothing, but they all bounced back with full mailboxes. I don't have a box of bananas, but I do have half a quart of grape tomatoes and some almonds. May the Farce be with you!

    Without being more specific about which sort of abbreviations you mean, this is the kind of answer you get.

            today?



            Why should today be any different from every other day?





            Bloodthirsty? Silly Ratt, don't you know bloodslurpers, esp. vampires, all the rage this year?

              so here is the next question you can shoot down.

              I took a metric program and have the dimensions being reported in english, I changed the precision/4 but it keeps switching back to 3 decimal places in the settings and in the report.

              Whats going on here?

              What the H.....?

                Is this anything like what you're looking for ?

                X = prints X axis value.
                Y = prints Y axis value.
                Z = prints Z axis value.
                Prad = prints the Polar Radius.
                Pang = prints the Polar Angle.
                D = prints Diameter value. For an ellipse, this is the minor diameter value (same as H).
                R = prints Radius (half of Diameter) value.
                A = prints Angle value.
                L = prints Length (used for cylinder, cones, slots, and ellipses.) For an ellipse, L gives you the major diameter value.
                H = prints the Height (used on cones, cylinders, and ellipses). For an ellipse, H gives you the minor diameter value.
                V = prints the Vector location.
                Form = prints the feature's integrated form dimension with the location dimension

                  Cookie, 12 years of taking up space as a CMM programmer reported in your additional information. (Thanks for filling that in BTW.)

                  Aside from hoping to perhaps brighten a gloomy day for someone out there with my predictable wit, I was also trying to get you to be a bit more specific about what you needed.

                  If I walk up to someone in my shop and say your part is 5 out, how are they supposed to know which feature I mean and do I mean it is 5 inches or 5 microns out?

                  Did you save the program after you changed the precision? Do you have a default setting in the F5 tables for 3 places?
                  There is a place called the settings editor where a default might be set as well, but I will let some other brave soul tell you how to find that.

                    Cliking on the callout like D for diameter I get the total list. What are these ? FL RN and ST
                    I just thought there might be a list somewhere.

                    I do not know what I did but I am not getting the program to revert back to 3 polace anymore.

                        Where are you seeing these letters? different places might mean different things. FL could be Florida, RN could be Registered Nurse, and ST might be Shape Turned.

                        Do you have a displayprecision command that is causing it?

                        Have you executed the program since you changed it back? Sometimes PC-DMIS is moody and won't give you what you want until you give it what it wants.

                        When posting questions here, there are some things to remember.
                        • We can't see what you are seeing. Code helps.
                        • We aren't mind readers, so what you think you implied might not be clear to us. State your issue clearly.
                        • We are a moody bunch who all work in Quality and expect others to think.
                        • You will get smartazzed comments, but you also will get answers.
                        When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.

                            Bear with these apes Cookie......... its all in fun.
                            I'm not at my machine but if you click on the dimension box, hover your arrow over the letter in question and then hit F1 the help box explains each of the abbreviations and what its function is.

                            HTH.
