  • Reporting cone angles

    I searched the forum and couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. We are running 2019, and it is still new to us. I need to report a cone half angle. older versions had a radio button in the angle box. I don't see that in this angle box. Is there a way to report cone angle that I am just missing? Did it get moved in this (or recent previous) edition? Is it located somewhere else?

    Or is there a different method of getting that half cone?

    It's in the location dimension, not the angle dimension. There is a checkbox for "A" and another checkbox for "Half angle", check both of those and you'll be good to go

      Never mind I found it...I can not believe that I have never noticed that

    Check your tolerances after you go to half angle, it will change your tolerance to half also.

        How do I dimension Cone angle? Can I dimension a 10° angle straight from an auto cone without having to make a line? Thanks

        Cone Angle
        by mdobb829
        When you report a cone angle is gives you the included angle. Can you make it report the angle of the taper, or as some call it, the per side angle?
