  • Generic & More

    Hello Folks,

    First attempt at posting on new board. Hope all goes well.

    I have a small rectangular part (plastic handle backplate for a vehicle), that has a cylindrical hole through it, at about a 45 degree angle.
    As such, I'm not quite sure how to report its' TP. Do I use X,Z or YZ??

    In my very early days of pcdmis, I seem to recall the programmer somehow using generic features for items such as these, and somehow aligning to and reporting out the results.

    I have no idea how to use generic features, not having required to use them myself in the past.
    Can anyone assist me with both the reporting out of features at a 45 degree angle, as well as some basic instruction as to the use of generic features?

    Just for the record, I just started using 3.7mr3. I made the jump from the far more stable 3.2mr3. I've had at least 8 crashes so far today.

    (I don't know how to attach items to a post)

    Thanks for your assistance in advance.

    Best Regards,

    I usually use the basic dimensions to offset my origin, and rotate the basic angle - reporting basics of 0,0
    (That sucks you crashed 8 times 3.7mr3...guess I might not upgrade...)

      Big step from 3.2 to 3.7. Good luck. I agree with KB with the offsets and rotate. A print or diagram would help with further discussion if needed.
