  • T Value For Edge Point...

    For example I have created an edge point with one surface sample hit. Neither the surface or edge are normal to any axis. How can I report separate T values for the edge and surface?

    Thank you in advance for any help.

    I don't know if you can extract the data for the sample hit. Why don't you try something like this?

    Code:
    SURF_PNT         =FEAT/CONTACT/VECTOR POINT/DEFAULT,CARTESIAN
                      THEO/<-33,-27.45,9.93>,<0,0,1>
                      ACTL/<-33.0049,-27.7306,9.9123>,<0,0,1>
                      TARG/<-33,-27.45,9.93>,<0,0,1>
                      SNAP=NO
                      SHOW FEATURE PARAMETERS=NO
                      SHOW CONTACT PARAMETERS=NO
                      MOVE/CLEARPLANE
    EDGE_PNT         =FEAT/CONTACT/VECTOR POINT/DEFAULT,CARTESIAN
                      THEO/<-33,-27.2,9.43>,<0,1,0>
                      ACTL/<-33.0015,-27.2098,9.4115>,<0,1,0>
                      TARG/<-33,-27.2,SURF_PNT.Z-0.5>,<0,1,0>
                      SNAP=NO
                      SHOW FEATURE PARAMETERS=NO
                      SHOW CONTACT PARAMETERS=NO
    You have two vector points, with their own data, but you reference the depth you want the edge point to be based on the top surface point.

      Thank you for the suggestion, makes sense. Seems as though there should be a way to get T value for both directions but maybe not!
