  • Carrying Nominal Diameter forward

    Can anyone tell me how to get PC-DMIS to carry the nominal dia. forward as it does with the tolerances? It would be nice if I didn't have to manually enter the same dia. for 50 holes. Thanks

    Enter it in the window before you create the diameter dimensions.

    EDIT - sorry bad advice above. the window for creating diameter dimensions doesn't give you that option - hmm, I wonder why not.

        The next time you do this, use a variable for the nominal and then you only have to change it one time... I know that doesnt help this time, sorry.

              Above your dim statements, open a line in the program.
              Type "Assign", hit tab, give it a name or use the default, hit tab, type in your NOMINAL value.

              Now go to the dim statement and double-click on the value in the nominal column(this should select the whole value), type in the name of the variable, hit enter.
              Your done. 49 more to go... You can try find and replace but it may not always recognize the variable(see Craig rant elsewhere regarding this)

              The reason that I double click is to make sure that the entire value is selected. You will get a "value not valid" message if you leave part of the old value there with the variable and then you get stuck in a loop...
