  • Creating points from an auto circle

    I'm trying to create points from auto circles using the "To Points" program I found on this forum. I created them fine from a hole & stud auto circle. I'm trying to measure wall thickness at point locations. I've been verifying these wall thicknesses with a caliper and I'm about .030" off. Anyone know what kind of points these auto circles give us? Any difference between a hole & stud circle?
    I used to be high on life but I built up a tolerance.

    Can make you a special output.

    I can modify any of your existing programs to output the point info you need from these circles. If you want x,y,z coordinates or radius or both it does not matter.

      What version are you using?

      I noticed when I upgraded to 4.1 that for some reason the points I was generating with the "ToPoints" was not probe compensating???

      I never had a single problem in 3.5 or in 3.7 though...

        The only problem I have with the topoints is after I run it I have to save then exit ALL the way out of pcdmis and go back in and turn the edit window back on. Never figured what was wrong.

            I use this a lot running 3.7mr3 and the issues I have are #1-The vectors jump around. I can create the points from an auto circle that is perp to my base plave and my K vectors are never zero. #2-If I edit any of the points my vectors flip.

              Any ideas to spit out distances from the points created from two circles? Variables?

                I have version 4.1 but all the variables for the points are in the variable builder

                This gives the x,y,z coordinates for hit 1 of CIR1
                V1=CIR1.HIT(1).XYZ
