  • Macro Cone Location

    Hi. I have a cone but I am using a variable for my Y location. Can the software trig out each individual hitpoint, or do I have to do that myself? I know I can do it but it will take a while. Thanks

    Code:
    CON3       =FEAT/CONTACT/CONE/DEFAULT,CARTESIAN,IN
                THEO/<0,4.75+VARA,0>,<0,1,0>,89.9999999,-0.037,0.19
                ACTL/<0,6.106,0>,<0,1,0>,89.9999999,-0.037,0.19
                TARG/<0,4.75+VARA,0>,<0,1,0>
                START ANG=0,END ANG=360
                ANGLE VEC=<-1,0,0>
                SHOW FEATURE PARAMETERS=NO
                SHOW CONTACT PARAMETERS=YES
                  NUMHITS=5,NUMLEVELS=2,DEPTH=0.001,END OFFSET=0.001

    There are different solutions, like creating a alignment at the theo cone location (with Y variable), measure the cone at 0,0 and recall the previous alignment.
    You can also create an auto-cone with the Y variable inside.
    I'm not sure that your solution works, but it can be tested offline !

      Thanks Jefman. I really like your suggestion of creating an alignment with the Y Variable. I'll probably try that.

      I'm not sure but I think your second suggestion is what I attempted? I don't think it works because the "showhits/hitbasic" are using the coordinates of the only model that I have (of the family of parts). So I think it's always going to try probing those coordinates regardless of which part part number I select. Even though the THEO and TARG say "VARA..." I did the same thing a Cylinder location in this program, but I had to give the showhits/hitbasic "VARA" in Y as well.

      I'll post back when I find something that works (probably your first solution)!

        instead of 0,0, you just have to ASSIGN/ZERO=0, then use zero instead of 0 !!!!!!!

      AFAIK your fist solution should work fine, however I've a feeling I may have seen someone recently reporting that the hits weren't updating in a similar situation, so it may be a bug (Not sure what version but a recent one I assume).
