  • Need help with slot TP with 2 TP calls

    Good Morning,
    I have been using PCDmis for about 2 years now and so far so good. however I have a call that I have not seen before and would like some guidance. I attached a picture of the slot calls. the part is a ring with multiple holes. datum A is a plane, datum B is the main OD and datum C is a small hole located to the right. I can not post a full print due to ITAR.
    Now for my question. how do I get these 2 different TP's? I do not know how to isolate the feature the way they are asking to.
    Thanks for any help or advice you can provide.

    Good Morning,
    A search "How to measure a slot hole" will get you going in the right direction.

        Probe them as slots, dimension them as slots, delete the unneeded axis, DF for width, LF (I think) for length.

          deleted from the line code or when I enter in the TP check menu?

          In the menu if you remember, I seldom do, or in the line code.

        Here's a similar thread. I used this recently to fix my issue.

        When setting up the feature control frame in Xact measure be sure to clear the diametrical symbol. Also, you will need to select which planar axis the position is measured from. You will need to specify a vector if the feature axis isn't perpendicular/parallel to the datum axis. quoted the ISO spec in the link above. I don't know the ASME Y14.5 equivalent, I'm still searching.
