  • Angle plane to plane

    Hi everyone

    Running pcdmis v3:7. I need to Measure the angle of two planes. The angle in question is a clip that is fitted to a compt at 90deg

    The angle when measured on a shadow graph is 95deg but when I measure on CMM I get 85. Why? And how do I get the angle to match the shadow graph

    Post your code.

      in later versions you can type in nominal angle and Demon will oblige. Or you can jasper the dimension settings (F5) for 0-360 or 0-180. There is also a question of feature to feature (the angle of two planes) OR angle of plane (feature) to axis. (maybe will give you the relief you seek)

        What do you mean post your code?

          feature to feature still give me 85° .... I will try the 0-360 or 0-180 and let you know

            check to make sure you are checking a 3d angle and not 2d

              Are you getting the correct angle? (95+85=180)

                  If you dimension PL1 to PL2, try to dim PL2 to PL1... Or create a reverse plane from on of them.

                      When you create the angle on earlier versions lke 3.7 it by default gives you the 'true' angle, you can toggle this to the 'complementary' angle using the F7 or F8 key. Somewhere in the dimension header there will be the word 'True', put the cursor on this and press F7 to toggle it to the complementary angle.

                          No, because I don't have a version to hand which had this method.

                          If you post the code of your angle dimension I'll highlight where you need to change it.
