Is there a way to tell PCDMIS to stop rounding the measurement results ie drop the last decimal place? I know about displayprecision, but that still rounds the results up or down.
Rounding of measurement results?

You lost me here. Where is the rounding ? I would personally get rid of the MIN and the MAX when I display an angle. They are always the same as an angle only has 1 value. I dont think that is really part of the question though ?

I really only need 2 decimal places on the angle. I put had to put it out to 4 to see where it was throwing it out.

Your customer is a bully and a jerk.

All limits are absolute. Dimensional limits, regardless of the number of decimal places, are used as if they were continued with zeros.

my customer is perfect and i don't know what i'm talking about. just ask them they'll tell you!
the first meeting at the customers place that i went to after being hired here, the customer QA manager told their QA inspector, in front of me, to ignore me because our shop isn't ISO9001 certified so obviously i didn't know what i was talking about. I'm not allowed to have any direct contact with that customers QA department anymore
