  • Thickness of curved plate.

    Hey guys

    I have a part that i need to measure the thickness of
    its 1mm thick and one side of the part has R105, the other side R107.
    So what i need to do is construct a point from R105 minus the radius. Then construct a point from R107 minus the radius, and evaluate the distance between the points.
    How can i do this?
    Is there any other way you would do it?

    If you have CAD, take a vector point on one side. Take another vector point in the same location but set the thickness value to 1mm and invert the vector.

      So basically one point with 0, 52, 20, / 0,1,0 (XYZ/IJK), and then another point with 0,53,20, / 0,-1,0 ?
      (im just curious if thats what you meant by thickness value)

      There's a box under the K vector box called thickness type. You can create one vector point at 0,52,20 /0,1,0, and another point at 0,52,20 /0,-1,0 with theoretical thickness of 1.

    Have you tried using the thickness gauge command?

    I think it came in 2019 R1
