  • Offsetting features

    I am working on a program with a circular part, with four holes 90 degrees apart. In these threaded holes (.201 diameter), I have .25 diameter pins screwed in so that I can get an accurate representation of the cylinders. Is there a way to create an offset cylinder off of the .25 diameter pin, to .201 diameter so I can reflect it in the report? I hope that makes sense. Thank you!

    I don't understand your question. Can you please re-phrase?

      Projected length might be what you need.

        he wants the measured cylinder of .25 (pin screwed into the tapped hole) to report the size of the tapped hole and not the size of the screwed in pin.

            I would do this 4 times

            Code:

              I use auto circle and grab the hole from the cad model, then change from an inside circle to outside, and lastly put how far up I want to measure on the thread locator in the depth field.

              How did you add F1?

              Insert/Feature/Generic

              Click on Circle

              Make sure the "diameter" option is selected

              Press OK

              Now that the "blank" generic feature is in your edit window, you must type the rest of the stuff in to get it like mine.
