  • Cones?



    CON1 =AUTO/CONE, SHOWALLPARAMS=YES, SHOWHITS=NO
    THEO/0,0,0.07,0,0,1,0.525,5,1.3
    ACTL/0,0.0001,0.07,0,-0.0000026,-1,0.5248,5.0003,1.2
    TARG/0,0,0.07,0,0,1
    THEO_THICKNESS = 0, RECT, OUT, CIRCULAR, ONERROR = NO ,$
    AUTO MOVE = NO, DISTANCE = 0.5, RMEAS = None, READ POS = NO ,$
    NUMHITS = 3, NUMROWS = 2, INIT = 0, PERM = 0, SPACER = 0 ,$
    START ANG = 0, END ANG = 180, DEPTH = 0.1 ,$
    ANGLE VEC = 1,0,0

    After I enter the nominals for this cone and select "create" it appears to take the correct hits on the CAD but the actuals are not "at nominal" and the vector of the cone is flipped.

    The CAD is imported iges from UG.

    When I "measure" the cone on the CAD the same thing happens.

    Any ideas as to what I'm going wrong?

    I can't figure out how to get my graphics display posted, either.

    THANKS

    the one thing that stands out to me is to change your # of rows to at least 3. se if this helps.

      Redone with 5 rows and 5 hits per row.....

        ok- try changing your end ancle to 360 and your depth to -0.1
        also- be sure your in the +z workplane

          Changed end angle and depth...ZPLUS work plane

            OK- CHECK THE PROBINGS. NEEDS TO PROBE THE CONE FROM BOTTOM TO TOP IN PC DMIS FOR YOUR 0,0,1 VECTOR

              Thanks, that may be it....the probing is from the top to the bottom.....

              Thanks again!!!!!!!!
