  • Aligning model to pre-programmed features

    I have a program already complete and I just received the model. How do I align my already created features and alignment to the Model I just brought into PCDMIS? The Model came in Iges format.

    Also, I need to rotate the model 180 degrees about Z in order to match my original alignment

      operation/graphic display window, transform

      rotate/translate/scale as needed, hit apply, then OK

        Thank you, was able to rotate my model. Now how do I get my pre-existing features and alignment to snap to the model?

      If you transformed your model using offset and rotate so that the trihedron matches your programmed alignment the features will snap when you run the program either online or offline..... I think

        The model and coordinate system of model all match to my program. Ran the alignment and program. Features and alignment is still not snapping to the model

      Hey SI_Guy, so your pre-existing manual features were created with the jog box hitting on the part?
      If yes, do the transforming of the model to match the set up. Then, execute the manual alignment and select "Cad=part" to snap.
      Hope it helps.

      p.s. Always try on a copy.

        Thank you!. All is running well now. Just figured the CAD=part all. I created at least 5 different saves of the same program just incase of any oopsies. I know the demon likes to play hard to achieve sometimes

      Ok. So the solution to this issue was to transform my model, and creating a new coordinate system when transforming. Than I simply pressed CAD=Part and everything came together. Thank y'all for your help.

        I would double check to ensure that measured features are defined to proper nominals.
