  • Create Cylinder from different size circles?

    I tried this by creating generic features with the circles to make them the same size. Didn't work since the construct cylinder would not see the generic feature as a circle even though it IS a generic 'circle'. Any other way to trick PC-Dmis into accepting this? When I try to just created a cylinder with the circles it throws the center point off big time.Thanks!

    Not really sure exactly what you are trying to do, but if you are looking for the vector between center points, construct a 3D line. Then take the IJK from the line and insert it into a generic cylinder with whatever diameter you want.

      If you want to construct two separate size diameters together, geometrically speaking that is a cone. If you click to construct a cone, PC DMIS can handle that construction all day.

      If you want the AXIS that the two circles share, simply construct a line from the center-point of one circle to the other.

        I just ended up using a 3d line. Only needed the center points anyway. Tried to construct a cone too but it didn't like that either but the center line worked. Thanks.
