I am trying to construct a cone out of 3 circles. The top circle is 60.800mm & the bottom circle is 60.730mm. So there is not much of a cone there. When I try to construct PCDMIS tells me the "math failed, combination of input features is not supported." Is this because the cone is at such a small angle it does not register as a cone? I cant think of any other reason 3 circles could not make a cone.

however I am pretty sure you can create a cone from a cylinder if memory serves me correct. Can you measure the circles as a cylinder at three different levels and try creating a cone from that?

Construct a cone from a few points and then change the bottom line to........

Shouldn't you use BFRE when using points from one kind of feature to build another kind  the probe compensations for the circle's points are done in the 'circle plane', which is not normal to the cone surface...AndersI
