  • Labeling individual points on an auto plane

    We use PC DMIS 2015 and I was wondering if there was a way to label each individual point of an auto plane in the graphic display window? The particular program I am wanting to do this on does not have a CAD model.

    Nope BUT using Auto Vector points to construct a Plane... you could:

    F5 -> ID Setup -> Labels for: Features -> Type: Points -> Starting Letters: Type what you want here -> Apply -> YES ->OK. Change as many times as you want and as long as you don't click "Defaults" it should only affect the part routine you're currently working on.

      Yes.

      Code:
      PLN1       =FEAT/CONTACT/PLANE/DEFAULT,CARTESIAN,OUTLINE,LEAST_SQR
                  THEO/<0,0,0>,<0,0,1>
                  ACTL/<0,0,0>,<0,0,1>
                  TARG/<0,0,0>,<0,0,1>
                  ANGLE VEC=<1,0,0>,RADIAL
                  SHOW FEATURE PARAMETERS=NO
                  SHOW CONTACT PARAMETERS=YES
                    NUMHITS=12,NUMRINGS=1
                    SPACER=100
                    AVOIDANCE MOVE=NO,DISTANCE=10
                  SHOW HITS=NO
      V1         =LOOP/START,ID=NO,NUMBER=PLN1.NUMHITS,START=1,SKIP=,
                    OFFSET:XAXIS=0,YAXIS=0,ZAXIS=0,ANGLE=0
                    ASSIGN/FZNAME=CONCAT("DAT_A_POINT",STR(V1))
      FZNAME       =GENERIC/POINT,DEPENDENT,CARTESIAN,$
                    NOM/XYZ,<PLN1.HIT[V1].TX,PLN1.HIT[V1].TY,PLN1.HIT[V1].TZ>,$
                    MEAS/XYZ,<PLN1.HIT[V1].X,PLN1.HIT[V1].Y,PLN1.HIT[V1].Z>,$
                    NOM/IJK,<0,0,1>,$
                    MEAS/IJK,<0,0,1>
                  LOOP/END

        Yep, this is definitely a better route especially after the fact. There's also a "TO_POINTS.EXE" somewhere here on the forum that comes to mind.

        Awesome! Thank you

      One trick could be to create the autoplane as you want it, copy it to a new feature, F9 the copied feature and break it out to vectorpoints. If the last step doesn't work, simply use the "To points" script to break it out to points. The RandomJerk way might be smarter though, as that method doesn't create features that will be measured in a program.

        Insert -> Report command -> Point Info...


        No need to do any extra work, construction or other contortion.
