Hello All,

Long time lurker, first time posting. Most answers I have needed I have gotten from the knowledgeable peps from reading this forum. Been programing PC-Dmis for about 2.5yrs. I am at a point where I need to use assignments/variables. I have been reading about assignments/variables thru the help file but I still am not getting it. What I need to do is a very simple assignment/variable and be able to report the result.

What I am trying to do is subtract a ID measurement from a OD measurement in order to get the wall thickness of a very simple ring and dimension and report the value. If there is another way other than using an

assignment in order to do this, I have not been able to figure this out. Yes I could create opposing vector points and create a line and dimension that, but I really need the whole average ring thickness and already have measured data from OD/ID . Any help with this would be much appreciated. This is what I have created for assignments, but do not know if this is correct or how to dimension and report.

ASSIGN/V1=MCYL_2760.DIAM0

ASSIGN/V2=MCYL_2560.DIAM0

ASSIGN/V3=V1-V2
