  • Angle true/compliment toggle

    I think v3.7 was the last version where you could toggle an angle between true and compliment. Is there another way to do this in V4 and up? I have tried reversing the order in which I pick the lines and even reconstructing the lines by reversing the order of the points selected to define the lines. It's not a huge deal but it would look better if the nominal on the report matched the print. I have asked B&S this question and the response was "we are asking Wilcox the same thing".

    I still use 3.2063, so can't answer fully, but here is a trick I use. On this part I need to report half of a cone. Funny thing is, I had just finished this section of the program when I read your post, so it was handy.

      Thanks John! That's a good work around. I've used quite a few variables in calculations like that. Mostly for creating trig'd out intersection points between lines and circles. PC-DMIS never seems to get it right. I've been spoiled by CAD after so many years.

      My favorite part about winter is the Sam Adams Winter Lager!

        Ahhhhh! A man with taste. Didn't have any of that this year (yet). My brother and I brewed a Czech Pilsner. Still working on those.

          Mr. Kingston Sir, Are you casting a gauntlet? I will cede you crusaders with coconuts and the ravenous bugblatter beast of traal, but I will be gathering to my side the trafalgorians and Milo Minderbinder's empire of supply! I will give you Major Major if you need a commander. . .

            Home Brew - Nice! A new micro brewery opened recently within walking distance of my house. Could be dangerous!

              We have a brewpub two blocks from work. Very dangerous.

                        What manner of weapons do you gentlemen care to choose.
                        Let the games begin.............

                        I must say, that my wager would be with the "whiskey" gentleman.
                        Whiskey is after all the choice of the more refined folk.

                        Wes, I too am partial to the finer things in life. I stand along side you and lend my support !!

                        Have a great day to All !!
