  • Trihederon not Moving

    Hey all, so I'm having alignment troubles today, Whenever I get to the ABC portion of the alignments my Trihedron stops moving when I select the Datum Features.
    I'll attach a little picture that hopefully gives you an idea of what I'm dealing with.

    So what I currently have is a Manual Alignment, followed by a DCC alignment(using different features than the manual), and an ABC alignment using Datums A, B, and C. When I get to the ABC alignment I am unable to get my origin into the correct spot. If I use my non-datum features the origin moves around fine but even if I let PCDMIS "AUTO-SET ORIGIN" The code is correct as far as I can tell, but the origin still won't move. I confirm that it hasn't moved by taking an auto point on datum A, and where it should display a Z of 0 it still displays the distance to the old origin.

    A1 =ALIGNMENT/START,RECALL:STARTUP,LIST=YES
    ALIGNMENT/LEVEL,ZPLUS,MAN_PLN_1
    ALIGNMENT/ROTATE,XPLUS,TO,MAN_PLN_2,ABOUT,ZPLUS
    ALIGNMENT/TRANS,XAXIS,MAN_CIR_1
    ALIGNMENT/TRANS,YAXIS,MAN_CIR_1
    ALIGNMENT/TRANS,ZAXIS,MAN_PLN_1
    ALIGNMENT/END

    A2 =ALIGNMENT/START,RECALL:A1,LIST=YES
    ALIGNMENT/LEVEL,ZPLUS,DCC_CIR_1
    ALIGNMENT/ROTATE,XPLUS,TO,DCC_CYL_1,ABOUT,ZPLUS
    ALIGNMENT/TRANS,XAXIS,DCC_CIR_1
    ALIGNMENT/TRANS,YAXIS,DCC_CIR_1
    ALIGNMENT/TRANS,ZAXIS,DCC_PLN_1
    ALIGNMENT/END


    Anyone see anything in my code or the way I'm doing this that might be the cause. and please let me know if there's any more code I can post to help.20190122_122224.jpg
    Don't know why It keeps turning the Photo to that orientation but It should be pretty clear which way is up.

    DCC levels to a Circle could be problem

      Correct. A circle is a 2D feature and should not be used to level to.

    Doh, that was a miss click the second time I tried it. here's the corrected code. That is not causing the issue I am having sadly.

    A2 =ALIGNMENT/START,RECALL:A1,LIST=YES
    ALIGNMENT/LEVEL,ZPLUS,DCC_PLN_1
    ALIGNMENT/ROTATE,XPLUS,TO,DCC_CYL_1,ABOUT,ZPLUS
    ALIGNMENT/TRANS,XAXIS,DCC_CIR_1
    ALIGNMENT/TRANS,YAXIS,DCC_CIR_1
    ALIGNMENT/TRANS,ZAXIS,DCC_PLN_1
    ALIGNMENT/END

      Does pln1 and cyl1 have the same vectors in your program?

    So I've narrowed it down to the Constructed Plane I have to use for my Datum A. For some reason whenever I translate to a non-constructed feature it works. When I use a constructed feature it doesn't. Has anyone else had this problem?

      Figured it out. For whatever reason PCDMIS wanted it was making my Plane A's values all zeros.

        There's an option (prob in F5 /Setup) to project constructed features to the current workplane. Mu guess is that's switched on.
