  • Transform a model

    So, I just found out the model I have in my program is off .0005 in in Z. It needs to be shifted up .0005. I know how to transform the model, I just don't know what happens to my measurements and scans
    after I do this. I'm very new to PCDMIS. Any suggestions??

    nothing happens to your program, all you are doing is moving the pretty picture of the cad model. Anything that is already programmed is NOT effected.

      After transforming your model you can add a Z offset to your alignment to shift everything then delete the offset from the alignment. I have done this before and it works great. When you add then delete, it's going to ask you if you want to update nominals. I believe you are going to say no when you add the offset then yes when you delete it but I'm not for sure if that order is correct, it could be the other way around. When done correctly, you will end up with your original alignment and the features will all be where they should on the model. Save your program as something else so you still have a master copy of the program (I add TEST to the end of the program name) then try it with the new program and when you get it to work correctly, save the program back as the original program name (make it the new master).

      EDIT: I think I am wrong above. I think you want to say YES to updating nominals when you add the offset to the alignment then NO when you delete the offset from the alignment. Try it with a dummy program just to be safe.
