  • Anyone know the ID for the Diameter input for a Constructed Circle from a cone-diam.?

    Fairly simple goal here, I'm trying to assign the result of a measured circle to the Diameter input on a Constructed Circle using the Cone/Diam method. Basically using the circle result as a gauge diameter to determine the depth of a counter-sink around a bore.

    I know I could achieve this by making a cylinder and intersecting the countersink cone, but for the sake of curiosity, I'm trying to do this without putting more points in the hole.

    I could permanently set the value of the diameter to the nominal of the bore, which would keep me in the ballpark, but for good practice and accuracy, I'd like to use the measured .diam value of the thru-bore as the gauge-diameter for the new constructed circle.

    Does anyone know what the ID of that input value is on the Constructed Circle dialog box? Is there one?

    I currently have it set as the .diam ID in my destination variable in the Assignment command, so I will run another part to see if it changes slightly.

    Current code, tell me if I'm on the right track here:

    CIR3 =FEAT/CIRCLE,CARTESIAN,IN,LEAST_SQR,NO
    THEO/<0.375,1.5845,-0.1>,<0,0,1>,0.22
    ACTL/<0.3749,1.5855,-0.1>,<0,0,1>,0.2199
    CONSTR/CIRCLE,BF,2D,PNT106,PNT107,PNT108,PNT109,PNT110,PN T111,PNT112,,
    OUTLIER_REMOVAL/OFF,3
    FILTER/OFF,UPR=0
    CON1 =FEAT/CONE,CARTESIAN,IN,LENG,NO
    THEO/<0.375,1.5845,-0.1652>,<0,0,1>,0.0481,0.2447,0.3553
    ACTL/<0.3748,1.5928,-0.2165>,<-0.0002373,-0.0248786,0.9996905>,0.0588,0.2514,0.3529
    CONSTR/CONE,BF,PNT96,PNT97,PNT98,PNT99,PNT100,PNT101,PNT1 02,PNT103,PNT104,PNT105,,
    ASSIGN/CIR4.DIAM=CIR3.DIAM
    CIR4 =FEAT/CIRCLE,CARTESIAN,IN,NO
    THEO/<0.375,1.5845,-0.0696>,<0,0,1>,0.2199
    ACTL/<0.3748,1.5896,-0.0891>,<-0.0002373,-0.0248786,0.9996905>,0.2199
    CONSTR/CIRCLE,CONE,CON1,DIAMETER,0.2199

    Thanks!!

      Change one character to lower case inside the [code][/code] and it will go in as all (except for 1) caps, you won't even need to include a comment.

      So I am interpreting this as saying that I don't need to use an Assignment command, and I just simply need to put "cir3.d" in place of the numerical value in the Theo line. Is that right?

      Yes, that's right

    construct a circle from the cone and select dia setting filling in the dia to be checked (use the thru hole diameter for this)
    then when you go to dimension it will give you the depth that that diameter occurs at.Boom your done

      It sounds like this will be using the nominal diameter every time to predict the circle height. What I was looking for is using an actual measured diameter from another feature (the thru-hole) to construct the cone-circle

    Then I would assign the Measured value and then plug that diameter assigned v# into the Diameter for the constructed cone circle

      Yes that is what I have done. I was posting to make sure I was using the right ID as my destination. It seems to be working so thank you!
