  • 4.1 Translation versus 3.7mr2

    Hello CMMers. I have a cad model translated to 3.7mr2. The cad origin is on 5 degrees. Another person had the same cad model translated into 4.1 and the origin was where the datums are. How does 4.1 do this????? Thanks for the input

    You can translate, rotate, etc. the origin to wherever you want in 4.0/4.1 but simply importing it in the different versions shouldn't make a difference.

      First thing I would definitely check the CAD import files and make sure whatever you are importing is the same CAD files as as different PC Dmis versions should import using the same CAD coordinates

      I use ProE and most models have multiple coordinate systems saved in their native format, ie .prt

      I have in the past on the same part saved a file off as IGES using one CAD cordinate system then realised the model was not correct,updated the model then re-saved but selected a different coordinate system thus when its gets into PC Dmis nothing lines up......just something to check
