  • Heads up

    I was running a program I built about 2 months ago. I had measured 2 parts and started on my third, but the CMM could not find the part, so I did a manual alignment. Now it was really lost, after a few minutes I found that PC DMIS had some how un-mirrored my CAD.

    When I built the program the CAD came in as a left hand part so I used the transform function to mirror the CAD.
    I'm still scratching my head on this one I don't know how it could even know it was a mirrored part after it had been saved I would think it would have created a brand new CAD file which would not include my mirror.
    V4.1

    Perhaps you re-imported the file?
    I found if you import and transform a part in V4.1,
    The matrix of the transformation is saved in Cadinfo.
    But if you re-import the part, the matrix gets deleted and ignored.
    (The part comes in as it had originally).
    Furthermore, I have not had much luck using the cadinfo matrix to get the part back where I had it before the re-import.

      No I was running one part after another. It worked fine and all at once it un-mirrored.
